Artist Portfolio Magazine – 2017 Q4 Art Competition
Maya Just Maya – South Orange, NJ
My artwork is an inquiry into the human condition and consciousness of being. I create bold imagery that is poetic and surreal, examining the interplay of reality and imagination within a metaphysical context.
My paintings explore the unity between humanity and nature and celebrate the power of animals and nature to nurture the spirit and open the heart, creating a doorway of communication to the Higher Self.
These circular canvases are invitations into my vision of the chaos and majesty of our world. They juxtapose symbols of beauty and tragedy that encompass modern reality. These kaleidoscopic compositions expose the ever changing and unresolved nature of life itself. It is difficult to find our way through the intricate and often confusing state of things, but there is always a pattern or formula, that once realized, will lead us to illumination.
