This piece is not easy to photograph, but hopefully you can see the beauty and the movement that I see. There is quite a bit of texture, roping lines that crisscross and circle. They carefully handmade with an acrylic medium. The painting is completely covered in copper leaf, including the sides and varnished heavily with a glossy varnish.

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.
