Madeline Gallucci uses painting and sculpture to examine how societal expectations result in both anxieties and celebrations of revealing our authentic selves. She pulls inspiration from internet beauty tutorials and melodrama films where mirrors and screens serve as sites of illusion and personal transformation. By combining saturated colors and economical materials, she calls into question the function of decoration and utility in how we think about our outward appearance and the way we perform everyday.

Gallucci received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2012 and her MFA from the University of Chicago in 2020.
