Madeleine Thornton-Smith has a background in painting and ceramics. Having moved from a primarily image-based practice to object-based, she is interested in the tension between these two forms of artmaking. Recently she has been challenging traditional archetypes of the vessel, pedestal and canvas by subverting the idea of the “support” in contemporary art. In 2017 Madeleine achieved First-Class Honours in Object-Based Practice (Ceramics) at RMIT. She has exhibited in various galleries throughout Melbourne, including Blindside, Seventh, Lamington Drive and Craft Victoria.
