Burying the Poet – Kathryn Madill

In Burying the Poet Otago painter and printmaker Kathryn Madill traverses the landscape of memory and mystery. In these two series of paintings, she brings together the hauntingly strange burials of early women British poets and the arcane promise of sea-faring vessels in a finely-woven evocation of poetry and passage.

Born in Ruatahuna in 1951, Kathryn Madill spent her childhood in Taupo and Dunedin. She graduated from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Art in 1971 with a major in printmaking. She has lived in Nelson, Waikouaiti and Auckland and has since returned to Dunedin. She exhibits widely throughout New Zealand and has works in private and public collections here and in Australia.
