- About -

East Hampton based artist Hildy Maze works with visually exploring the investigation of mind focusing on abstract contemplative figurative images developed with the view that art can awaken us to the obscurations that cloud our mind from recognizing the clarity of awareness of our inherent nature. With her experience of Tibetan Buddhist meditation using oil on paper drawing, painting, and collage she intimately describes how our active mind creates collages of thoughts and patterns, as in a dream. If we examine our thoughts, we can see they are fragmented pieces, empty of solidity. “None of us can avoid thoughts,” she says, “but through awareness of our pitfalls, beauty, strengths, and weaknesses we can open windows into the mind”. The core of her contemplative art practice is to visually embody the blind spots as a result of our thoughts. She is interested in the study of how the mind works as a means of gaining insight into how we communicate, how we create an identity through form, emotions, and consciousness, and how we hide in that creation. She explains that essentially this work is about all of us and the empty, clear and unconditional nature of mind we all have.
