Maddie Yuille (b.1988, British) is a visual artist whose practice focuses on painting to explore a sensory depiction of human embodiment; she experiments with materials in order to communicate experiential moments. Her most recent work critiques our conceptualisation of “nature” as a place separate and distinct from human lives -specifically thinking about the historic vilification of women accused of witchcraft, often as a result of being “too close” to nature. Her paintings reimagine the stories of these women, in particular that of the “witches of Belvoir” - a mother and two daughters accusedof witchcraft by the Lord of the Manor on which they worked. In her utopian images the women are instead free to take pleasure in their surroundings - swimming, resting, and tending to one another. In this vital landscape both women and nature have agency. Maddie lives in London, UK.
