Inspired by the natural beauty of the Canadian Shield, the work captures the serenity and vastness of these locations using an ethereal colour palette and dream-like abstract forms. She invites the viewer to take a moment and be transported to a place beyond the bustle of everyday city life. The installation is another collaboration between the artist and Accura Glass - here, the challenge became translating the textural impasto of Madison's hand-painted work into a full-scale digitally printed and laminated series of glass panels. The piece was created by producing a series of planning sketches and study paintings, which were eventually translated into a one-of-a-kind painting at 50% installation scale, which was professionally scanned at 1200dpi and printed at full-scale by a team of expert glass manufacturers.
