About Madeleine Harrington

About the artwork

Madeleine Harrington. Red Storm, 2019. Oil on canvas 210 x 121 cm Known for her large scale works on canvas, Harrington’s practice is heavily influenced by the legacy of abstract expressionism, exploring images and ideas relating to ‘nature’ and landscape and its emotional impact upon us. The French word frisson is, ‘a sudden strong feeling of excitement or fear; a thrill’, this sentiment is what serves as the inspiration of the work. Harrington’s painterly and material concerns embody feelings and sensations she experiences via the ‘natural’ world. The natural world can make the human race feel insignificant and that can be frightening. For example, Immanuel Kant’s ‘mathematical sublime’. However, distance can be used as a means of gaining pleasure from it. For example, a storm seen at a distance can be aesthetically beautiful, though, dangerous and frightening at close proximity. As well as working with distance, scale is addressed in Harrington’s works. The large canvas’ represent the grandeur of ‘nature’.
