Maya’s abstract mixed-media artworks are inspired by urban imperfections–cracks in sidewalks, peeling paint, rusted metal. Influenced by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, Maya embraces the aesthetic flaws of city life, translating daily discoveries into heavily layered and textured paintings. “Some works have close to fifty layers,” she mentions. “I like to layer paint and media slowly, a little at a time.” Maya employs a neutral palette and generous applications of metallic leaf to create meditative yet sumptuous artworks, quietly enticing the viewer.
Hi! Thanks so much for your interest in my art. I posted a reply earlier, but for whatever reason, the blog didn't work. I will be happy to make something very similar to "Gold Vein" for you you, if you commission the artwork through UGallery's commissions tab. Otherwise, I am currently in the process of creating a few more pieces similarly themed. Again, than you for reaching out and I hope that you have a great holiday season! Maya
I love "The Light Within, Gold Vein" and its inspiration. I was was so disappointed it sold before I could snatch it. Is this work part of a series, or do you have a similar body of work? Thank you.
