Hildy Maze     drawing   painting  collage
For me, abstract contemplative drawing is a way of navigating my mind and it remains the fundamental vehicle of my practice. Drawing is the ground to all my work that allows me to be at my most inventive and intuitive. My work has an environmental quality made in the context of dependent arising; that all things arise in dependence upon multiple causes and conditions, and impermanence, meaning they will age, become fragile, be affected by light yet will remain as those things we search for and cherish possibly in the attic or basement, an archaeological site, or a memory. From an ongoing awareness of thoughts my work attempts to display an experience of this process, seeing thoughts and feelings, while neither good or bad, as passing empty reflections allowing thoughts and physical sensations to arise and cease naturally while imaging the psychological and emotional moments. These thoughts and emotions are not one, not two but beyond one and many.

The work on paper has been archival treated.
