Lot Madeleine

If an open mind is a two way street, the inside of Lot’s head
must look like the broad and spacious boulevards you find in old
European cities like Paris and Rome. There’s no expectation when
she’s looking at the world around her. Just acknowledgement and
reinterpretation.

Through hours of meditational drawing a day she creates
patterns, mantras, monsters and quotes which can be a reflection
of almost anything; Old hobo signs, ancient symbols, poetic
dreams or just a conversation with her cats.

She has a terrible fear of new, white paper. So you can find her
cruising through Amsterdam on a skateboard or a carrier cycle
looking for old, abandoned materials which could turn into a
background for her materialized thoughts. Wooden panels,
windows, pieces of old floorboards…

At the Royal Academy of Art she redefined the whole concept of
graduation by handing in a hand written / drawn final paper and
rebuilding her living room in the middle of the school. They had
to let her go… One of Amsterdam’s favourite artists, Piet Parra,
took her in to show her something about what it takes to be a
professional artist these days. Straight away she had a local hit
launching her ‘Rip This Shirt’ concept. You buy a T printed by Lot
with the strong encouragement to cut it up as fast as you can. Her
underground style also found upper class recognition as she drew
designs for brands as Absolut Vodka and Dom Perignon.

Lot’s exhibition in GO Gallery, in colaboration with Sit, will start on Saturday july 20th of 2013.
