“None of us can escape the habit of projecting thoughts and concepts onto reality itself…” Artist Hildy Maze
I never get tired of looking at collages by Hildy Maze, a painter working from her Long Island art studio. What an inspiration! Just the right touch of shape, color and texture to bring about a change of consciousness.
Do not be deceived by the seemly random marks and sporadic pigment impacts upon the page. These statements of line and color are the essential dynamics of a well orchestrated capture of life’s very essence.
Folded, bent, pushed, scraped, painted, drawn, pressed, mashed, turned, twisted, toppled and compressed, these paintings have been through it. The process exposes the revelation, much as a lifetime journey reveals the core ideas, to those who are seeking.
Accidental markings merge with bold intentions from the artist to express a state of mind both fleeting and lingering.
Embrace the state of mind and then let it go.
