Artist's Statement

This work is an abstract contemplative way of looking at self as continually conflicted trying to keep alive the fiction of its existence. The images are an intentionally unfinished—aesthetic that embraces the unresolved, open-ended, imperfect, intimate relationship we have with ourselves and others by investigating the mind looking at itself.



Hildy Maze is best known for her oil and paper abstract contemplative collages, drawings and paintings exploring the investigation of mind. In her messy paradise, which is her studio, Hildy is not trying to make something ‘good’ or ‘pleasing’ or clever. Her curiosity is with the process of connecting to the flawless from before any beginning unconditional basic nature of mind. Though her process and handling of her materials in making the images she intimately describes the obscurations to this flawless nature we all have. Her work is influenced by her practice of Tibetan Buddhist meditation involving the recognition of the intrinsic nature of mind. Hildy has exhibited her work throughout the U.S. including NYC, Long Island City, Brooklyn, California, Bejing, China. She has won numerous awards and is in several private collections in the U.S, Europe, and Asia.
