Maddie Yuille (b. 1988, London) is a visual artist living and working in London. Since
graduating with an MA in Fine Art from City and Guilds of London Art School (2019), she has been shortlisted for the Ingram Prize (2021), the Ashurst Emerging Artist Award (2020), and the Contemporary British Painting Prize (2019). Her work is held in collections across the UK and globally. Yuille’s most recent body of work centres around the relationship between figures and nature and how the two intertwine.
Yuille’s practice focuses on painting to explore a sensory depiction of human
embodiment. She creates dream-like landscapes in which bodies emerge from and meld
with their environment – critiquing the idea that “nature” is a realm distinct and separate
from human lives. In particular, the connection between women and nature and how
historically a patriarchal society has conceived of both women and nature as being wild
and unruly, needing to be tamed, interests her and is the focus of her work.
