Maya Hayuk

Maya Hayuk September 06 - October 06, 2012

COOPER COLE is pleased to present a solo exhibiton with New York based multidisciplinary artist Maya Hayuk.

Maya Hayuk is a muralist, painter, photographer, printmaker, video artist and musician. Her art practice has carried her between San Fransisco, Baltimore, Boston, Toronto and New York. This changing environment has inspired her explosive works of art from large scale murals, to slightly more modest works on cavas. Hayuk explores electric colour, distorted symmetry and unusual geommetry that tends to resemble kaledescopic views, airbrushed nail art, Mexican woven blankets, Ukrainian Easter eggs, chandeliers, mandalas, Rorschach tests, holograms, or even views from the Hubble telescope. The precise and calculated lines in her brushstrokes become an essential element in the unpredictable symmetry that results.

Her work has been exhibited extensively internationally including at New Image Art (Los Angeles), A.L.IC.E. (Brussels), COOPER COLE (Toronto), as well as large-scale public murals across the United States, Brazil, China, the Bahamas, and Chile. Her work has been featured in in various printed and electronic media including monographs published by Ginko Press and Nieves. Hayuk was a participant at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, 2011.

COOPER COLE will welcome works by Hayuk which she herself describes as “bright, massive, intricate, and joyful.” The exhibiton will feature one of her signature wall installations, paired with a new body of works on canvas.
