Fine Art, Painting
Madeleine Moore's research interests include: the representation of spaces and the cultural references that are attached to them; the histories that place, spaces and buildings accrue over time; and the history of Modern Architecture and its representation in film and literature.
Her practice concentrates on the depiction of spaces both interior and exterior through painting and drawing, reduced to their essential elements. Just enough information is retained specific to the original source, defining a space hovering between fiction and reality, alluding to stories. She has exhibited works in specific locations, creating a dialogue between the spaces depicted and the exhibition location.
She studied at UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, Slade School of Fine Art, London, Hunter College, New York, and received an MA in Painting from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 1997. She has lectured in art institutions in Ireland and the UK including Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork; Limerick School of Art and Design; Galway and Mayo Institute of Technology; IADT, Dun Laoghaire; Sligo Institute of Technology; UCL Bartlett School of Architecture and Royal College of Art, London. In 2004, she participated in the Artists’ Work Programme at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. As well as practising as an artist, she has worked both as a self-employed architect and in architectural practices in Ireland, Germany and UK including Foster and Partners, London.
