Paper Plane Gallery - Anna Madeleine
It was my second visit to Darling Street in one week, first for an opening at Artereal and then for Art Month which gave me a chance to visit Paper Plane for the first time and I loved it and hope to return.
‘Fault Lines’ by Anna Madeleine is a collection of cool imaginative works on large pieces of paper some of which are on maps and dress-making paper. Detailed drawings of sections of the human skeleton and objects like shells and against backgrounds of geological maps.
It’s as if Anna is recreating and making alterations to her own life, ‘Alterations’, altered map, here she has re stitched parts from other maps that are relatively the same but in different colours and different sizes into the same areas to see what it would be like and effectively to. I like the contrast of the red thread against the blue and green of the map, nicely done.
‘Drown’, pigment ink on dress making pattern is a wonderful piece full of imagination and technique. There is a lot to read in this work and it’s probably my favourite out of all of them.
And I love a great drawing. Keep up the great work Anna.
