Under these 2 images is Black Hole Information Paradox, 2009, 144" x 72", triptich, acrylic on canvas and wood panel.


A post on May 11th, 2009 on presents these works by Maya Hayuk and refers us to her website
I love her exciting sense of colour and the curious forms and ideas. A very politically active artist, prolific and very dynamic from what can be gleaned visiting her website. Well worth a closer look if this work resonates at all. Drawings from a few years back are fascinating...and the influence of her Lithuanian background is evident, as she says, in her work. 

On the artist's website click on videos and watch current TV for a brief but interesting introduction to the artist.
