The Portrait Hall
Madelaine Lyons Cooper
April 10th -26th
Reception April 10th, 7-9pm
Small scale portraits adorn a wall marking connections between seemingly disparate, yet somehow familiar, characters. What are the ties that make a family? What components make a human? In this installation Madelaine Lyons Cooper explores these questions while creating a fictional bloodline drawing from personal histories, pop-culture, and myth.
Take a moment with the family, and find for yourself the parts that make a whole.
Madelaine Lyons Cooper is a Toronto based artist working in printmaking, painting, textiles, installation, and artist books. She completed her BFA in Criticism and Curatorial Studies from OCAD University in 2011, with a studio focus in printmaking.
Growing up with two documentary film editors for parents left her with an enduring interest in storytelling, and the way we structure our past. This is evident in much of her work and continues to be a driving force in her practice.
