Madeleine Gross is a Toronto-based artist who customizes her photographs with paint in a way designed to “abstract landscapes but without completely abstracting reality.” A graduate of The Ontario College of Art and Design where she gained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, Madeleine intuitively applies gesture, texture, color and strokes with paint with the idea of emulating an immersive reality for viewers and in turn induce the sensation of actually being there just by looking. The inspiration she finds in nature and the effortlessly entertaining pastime of people watching can be felt in her images; with textural color layers and a realistic movement, her images embody the rippled water from a jet ski, ocean waves, the fresh beach breeze. Positive connotations are at the heart of her work, with each of the photographs taken on her trips across the globe, all enhanced by a warm and bright color palette applied through a few happy strokes of a brush. Madeleine's work has been exhibited and acquired in private and public collections across the globe.
