Maddie Yuille (b. 1988) is inspired by the complex cultural history of women and water. The element is often acknowledged for its healing properties, but lakes, rivers and seas have also been sites of violence. Her recent body of work has been inspired by a mother and her two daughters, “the witches of Belvoir”, who were accused of witchcraft in 17th century England.
Yuille graduated with an MA in Fine Art from City & Guilds ofL ondon Art School (2019) and has been shortlisted for the Contemporary British Painting Prize (2019), the Ashurst Emerging Artist Award (2020), and most recently the Ingram Prize (2021). She has recently taken part in Elephant Lab, a month-long residency run by Elephant that provides artists with a range of art supplies from our sister brands including Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Lefranc Bourgeois.
Choosing to experiment with Winsor & Newton oil paints, Yuille explores how different layers and mediums might emulate water. You can read more in an exclusive interview with her here.
