"A Second Guess" is a story about understanding and exploring our imperfections using discarded prints, gouache, journal pages, washi, and collage.
The objects and materials in my work depict the struggle I have with my body and my obsessive desire to manipulate and reshape it. This installation is reflection on a space where I saw first understood my body as imperfect: the gym.
Madison Svendgard creates gouache paintings on paper. Her work is primarily figurative and narrative based.
Pieced together with old prints from my stint as a printmaker, bits and bops from watercolor sheets, scraps of journal pages written in a drunken stupor and obsessive mark making all come together to form these collages. Using my own personal iconography I navigate my fears, anxiety and introspection.
