by Madyson Ysasaga
Madyson Ysasaga is a BFA candidate at Brigham Young University in studio art. She works across a wide variety of media including photography, sculpture, installation, and performance. Her work is primarily influenced by her personal biography. At the age of eight, Madyson was diagnosed with a critical life-threatening genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis. By the age of 24, she had a life-saving double lung transplant. Much of her artistic practice is informed from these experiences—especially how the subject of mortality connects the two. She is currently working remotely to complete her degree while she lives in Houston, Texas.
