"Why do you use the name Mad Meg?
Mad Meg is the title of a famous misogynist painting of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. It represents Meg driving an army of women in the pillage of Hell. Meg is a woman so enraged that the demons flee before her. I love this painting and this character. My nickname is Meg. And I use this name as an identification of empowerment. "
Carrying a basket full of pens, pencils, paper, and ink, Mad Meg would go on walks—and be drawn into the depths of the earth, buried among putrefied human bodies, pursued by insect men and turbid animals. And she relates all this to us through her drawings of what she’d seen...
Harmonious and nightmarish, her universe is a reflection of our time, our society. Her Tableaux de Digestions, inspired by the works of the great masters art history—Rembrandt, Rubens, Jan Van Eyck, Filippo Lippi, Peter Brueghel, Hieronymus Bosch—engulf us with the putrid stench of hell where graces become ghouls, and anatomy gives way to pornography…
“There is no point in being pessimistic, because the worst is always certain.”
