about




Maddy Buttling lives and works in north London. Graduating from Chelsea College of Arts amidst the lockdowns of 2020, her work encapsulates repetitive domestic spaces. On an intimately small scale, her paintings ritualistically stalk household pets. She devotes herself to unironically deifying the ephemeral pet, while observing the humour and tenderness of the relationship between human and animal.
