Born: 1974, Jerusalem
Maya is one of the brightest new artists in Israel. Her works mine the mysteries of existence but use bodily imagery, plant forms, graphs and even ships and rocks to anchor her thoughts in the real world. Systems are replicated and deconstructed, the rational is questioned and dichotomies abound. Order is disrupted, identities are questioned, but the beauty and awesomeness of life is not forgotten but foregrounded. Ultimately these are environmental and ecological questions about where the human leaves off and the rest of existence begins. She is an installation artist as well as a consummate draughtsman and printmaker. Future works are sure to be groundbreaking and quite unique.
