Madeleine Keinonen’s intricate pieces interrogate perceptions of the external self. Working with deconstructed self-portraits she explores the fragmented body, often using repetition and pattern as conduits for contemplation and confusion. Carefully concealing and revealing segments of images, Keinonen’s constructions both invite and obscure suggestions of identification and narrative.
Keinonen holds a Bachelor of Photography from the Queensland College of Art (2012). She has been a finalist in the Moreton Bay Art Award in 2013 and 2015. Keinonen has exhibited her work widely across Australia, some exhibitions include: In Flux at Brunswick Street Gallery, Melbourne (2016); Less at The Laundry Artspace Brisbane (2016); Greetings From… at Workshop, Brisbane (2015); and UNVEILED at Gallerysmith Project Space, Melbourne (2014). Her work is held in private and public collections, including the Mater Hospital Art Collection and the Daryl Hewson Photographic Collection.
