'I have devoted my whole life to Art and now the moment has come to share the wealth that I have collected over the years, to bring hope and light in these dark chaotic times where fear reigns.' Madama

What is Modern Sacred Art?

Modern Sacred Art distinguishes itself from traditional religious Sacred Art. It is Modern/Contemporary. It isn’t linked to one specific style but it is 'The New Stream, Medicine Art from the Heart'.
There is a growing interest in the healing power of Art, Music etc. also in museums and scientific publications. Madama developed this practice and insight more than 25 years ago. Specifically in her unframed canvases, painted on both sides. They are the scores at concerts but also challenge people to look in silence at the painting, ‘sit in the large painting’ and create their own story. The Colour Temple is recently the venue for this experience. Modern Sacred Art is Ritual Art, it has essence in its meaning and story.
Art as Medicine that nourishes. It is an ecological way of experiencing art, it gives spiritual, sacred nourishment and enriches your consciousness. You become aware that you are an infinite potential spiritual being, a sovereign domain, a creator.

Sacred Art can be expressed in many different ways, figurative, trans figurative, abstract or cross over. The common denominator is the energetic and healing power. It can be experienced in the work of Rembrandt, Michelangelo Van Gogh, Rothko, Niki de St. Phalle, Frida Kahlo.
The MAMMSA foundation manages Madama’s core collection. The core collection is the fundament for Madama Museum Modern Sacred Art.

Participation, Creation Realisation
That is what MAMMSA stands for and wants to transmit by the different Art expressions. Address and activate the creative energy in everybody as in Madama Living Art Events, talks, lectures, workshops etc., as co-creator. To establish a movement of people who live and work from a creative perspective in the broadest sense of the word. Create a positive life field as counterweight in these chaotic times.

Open meeting space
MAMMSA is an open meeting space for creation, exchange and support. We organize expositions, lectures and will undertake anything to highlight Madama Movement Modern Sacred Art and connect artists that work in the same tradition. In the end this will result in a Madama Modern Sacred Art Museum where all activities in cooperation with other artists can take place.
The movement expands by Podcasts, blogs, lectures, expositions.

Madama shares her insights every week in an article inspired by a painting, text etc.

We like to get in touch with:

  • People who underwrite another vision on Art and know how enriching this experience can be.
  • People/companies that want to support us with donations
  • People who want to organise a Madama Living Art event and invite their network.
  • People who want to volunteer to assist in the studio or garden.
