Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Madison Green, C’2023, is a multidisciplinary visual artist and art major at Spelman College. Madison started painting for the first in 2019, just a few months before attending Spelman; however, they have been drawn to visual storytelling for as long as they can remember. Their current artistic practice utilizes drawing, painting, photography, and digital illustration/collage. Reflecting themes of play, femininity, “being Black,” and more, their work calls for looking inward with curiosity and compassion. While in school, Madison has focused on cultivating their portfolio, refining their artistic voice, and further using creativity to prompt social, political, and philosophical dialogue.

You Can Almost Touch It...

“You can almost touch it…” is a mixed-media triptych that explores themes of liberation, resistance, and power. Inspired by the traditional triptych often found during the Renaissance, the completed work will include three moveable panels hinged together. Unlike the original triptych, however, each panel features three-dimensional elements as well. In other words, the project will not consist of three flat paintings; instead, each of the sections will resemble shadow boxes comprising of multiple visual components/layers.
