The Patrons saw Madison’s work on the University of Oregon’s online BFA thesis and quickly acquired multiple pieces. Madison's focus on the post-war timeframe of the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s was unique.
"Madison keeps getting better,” says Kyle. “In 2021 and '22, she has been cranking out next-level work. The story-telling in her art really explores feminism, pop culture, and a time period that so many can relate to.”
Bryce elaborates, “Madison’s work is so honest. Her color palette so spot on. It’s vibrant work that evokes a level of nostalgia for those who lived through the post-war period, while addressing topics that should not be ignored.”
Below are samples of her work, but here's a full portfolio of all of Madison's paintings.

About Madison Skriver
Madison’s work is heavily focused on the aesthetics and visual themes of the post-war period. For her, the extreme cultural shifts of the 1960s and 1970s have become their own entity. She explains, “I want my paintings to carry a haunting quality to the viewer, and to convey something nostalgic but also elusive and unfamiliar.”
Madison is interested in that time period and how (or why) perpetuated stories and images become a part of our personal identities. Says Madison, “I am drawn to the post-war period so deeply. There are so many stories and images that need to be remembered and re-told. It is arresting to consider how much of our way of being today is influenced by that period of time.”
Madison resides in Portland, OR and has a BFA from the University of Oregon.
