Artist's Statement

My work is driven by a curiosity into the investigation of mind thru art. None of us can avoid thoughts, but through awareness of our pitfalls, beauty, strengths and weaknesses we can open windows into the mind. The core of my contemplative art practice is to visually embody the blind spots as a result of our thoughts. I am interested in the study of how the mind works as a means of gaining insight, how we communicate, how we create identity through form, emotions and consciousness, and how we hide in that creation. Essentially this work is about all of us and the empty, clear and unconditional nature of mind we all have. When we know the nature of our mind we will know the nature of our world. http://hildymaze.com


Hildy Maze is an American artist with Turkish.Russian, Austrian heritage. Born in Brooklyn,NY she received a BFA from Pratt Institute. For many years Hildy lived and worked in her loft in Tribecca,NYC before moving to East Hampton L.I. NY where she currently works and lives. Her work is influenced by her 25 year study and practice of Tibetan Buddhist meditation involving the recognition of the basic nature of mind that is intrinsic, clear empty awareness. Hildy’s work visually investigates and plays with how we obscure our recognition of these intrinsic qualities of mind. The provocative titles help to create an attentive environment. Ms.Maze has exhibited her work through the U.S. including NYC,Long Island City, Brooklyn, California, Bejing, China, Cologne,Germany and the Eastern End of Long Island. She has won numerous awards and is in several private collections in the U.S, Europe and Asia. http://hildymaze.com
