Madeline von Foerster - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
"Executed in the oil and egg tempera mische technique developed by the Flemish Masters, these paintings allude to Renaissance sources in both method and style. A strong influence from the School of Fontainebleau loans an aura of mystery and otherworldliness to the artworks. The paintings often resemble Wunderkammern – Enlightenment era “cabinets of curiosities,” where the wonders of nature were collected and displayed. Surrealistic elements also often occur, though in the service of meaning and metaphor, rather than for oddity's sake." -Madeline von Foerster, New York City

"Identity loss and re-development is explored through the manipulation of surface texture and paint handling. In the effort to convey the psychological struggle in dealing with self-evaluation and mass appeal, my work is both social exposition and autobiographical. Through standing-in for the commercial character my identity is distanced but also clearer, by proxy." -Theresa Pfarr, Princeton, NJ.
