Madi Acharya-Baskerville’s practice is a synthesis of unlikely elements. She creates works which move fluidly between different media. Her work is concerned with the passage of time as an agent for disintegration, preservation and renewal. The objects she collects keep her connected to the past - yet the past becomes the present as she adorns discarded matter with decorative patterns from her Indian culture. Through transformative processes she explores how the found or the abandoned can come to embody aspects of ourselves and represent life changes.

Madi Acharya-Baskerville graduated with an MA in Fine Art at University of Wales Institute. She has shown work in numerous open submissions including RA Summer Exhibition (2016). International group shows include ‘Sanctuary Part 1’, National Museum of Kenya (2011) and ‘Sanctuary Part 2’, Brunei Gallery, London (2013). She currently lives and works in Oxford.
