Artist Spotlight: Sharon Madanes

Sharon Madanes is a New York-based artist and doctor. Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Madanes studied art and pre-med at Yale, followed by an MFA at Hunter College and medical school at Columbia University. Focusing on her medical work as a central theme, her paintings draw from memories or quick gesture sketches made during shifts working on medical and psychiatric wards. Of the work she says: “I’m interested in the contradictions and juxtapositions that fill the hospital setting; banality with life crisis; fast and slow time; autonomy and care; intimacy with strangers.”
