This piece is inspired by Cy Twombly's "Mars and the Artist."

A complex emotional dialogue is barely visible through the outer thin foggy layer of white wash. It's conversation listened on, an inner world glimpsed. The sides are very light gray, complementing the colors of the painting and the varnish is matte. This piece is acrylic and collage on gallery wrapped canvas. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Maya

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.
