A collection of paintings from the last two years.
Published on the occasion of Maya Hayuk's Ultra, Ultra Deep Fields exhibition at MU, Eindhoven, March - May, 2010.
A muralist, photographer, printmaker, painter, illustrator, and documentarian, Maya Hayuk, born in Baltimore, lives and works in Brooklyn. Her extremely prolific work, be it her large abstract murals or her smaller works on paper, is imbued with symmetry and colour. It is midway between the stellar clouds that the Hubble Telescope allows us to see and the abstract patterns on Ukrainian Easter eggs, Mexican blankets, Rorschach tests and holograms. Using a symbolism that also leaves room for spirituality, she expresses her love for what is positive and whole.
