BIO
Madeleine Söder’s work is often about repetition, labor, and contemplation. She believes that the process itself is just as important as the finished work. She is interested in the connections between space and form – between what is and what isn’t, using materials that are barely there, but still have the ability to hold space, light, and breath. Söder’s work is driven by her continuous deep exploration of the mind and spiritual self through daily meditation and yoga practice.

Madeleine Söder was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1968. She moved to Hawaii in 1996 where she earned a Master degree in Public Health, and later a MFA at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Söder was the recipient of the prestigious Baciu Visual Arts Award at Artists of Hawaii in 2001. In 2010 she was in a 3-person exhibition at the Contemporary Museum at First Hawaiian Center in Honolulu.
