artist bio

Madeline Mace is a fiber, sculpture, and performance artist based in Loma Linda, California. Her work confronts questions of the male and female experience within a patriarchal family structure. Her use of repetitious techniques in crochet, knitting, embroidery, and weaving is an act of domestic ritual to express escape, safety, and security. While her work is autobiographical in nature, Mace seeks to give voice to people who have been silenced and use collected data and testimony to broaden the reach and impact of her artwork.

 

Mace received a BFA in Fine Arts and Religious Studies from Southern Adventist University in 2020. She now exhibits her work nationally and is planning to pursue her masters in fine arts within the coming three years. During 2020 and 2021, she had two solo shows and three group shows; one of which includes Manifest Gallery’s CUT exhibition in Cincinnati, Ohio. Mace will be published in the seventeenth season of The Manifest Gallery Annual in 2022.
