Maya Hayuk

1/4

         Maya Hayuk is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY, who's paintings grab our attention with vibrant colours and graphic brushstrokes.

        The work in her "Remain in Light" series do not shy away from the materiality of paint, allowing the lines to wobble and drip as each pattern is built up brushstroke by brushstroke. This free-hand nature contrasts with their systematic and symmetric final result. However, their soft-yet-structured quality gives Hayuk's paintings strong ties to the traditions of tapestry weaving and quilt making. The more each work is studied, the more intricate it is revealed to be.

        Maya Hayuk's work has a density that is achieved by both their patterns and their build up of paint. Each work is hypnotizing and immersive, and we are sure even more impressive in their real-life scale.
