Madelaine Lyons Cooper creates strangely dream-like figurative paintings in a candy-coloured palette, and richly detailed linocut prints and etchings. Growing up with two documentary film editors for parents left her with an enduring interest in storytelling, and the way humans structure our histories. This is evident in much of her work and continues to be a driving force in her practice. She draws deep inspiration from vintage imagery and artifacts. While at OCAD University she focused on printmaking and began her ongoing relationship with relief printing. She currently lives and works in Toronto.
