Maya Hayuk has gained notoriety for her colorful, dynamic and abstract murals, paintings and screen prints. Characterized by symmetrical compositions and intricate patterns, such works recall traditional Ukrainian crafts, space travel and bizarre spiritual landscapes. Hayuk combines advanced painting techniques with the pursuit of psychedelic experience through visual form, so that her work appears to have been made with a carefully studied carelessness; languid, paint drips give way into swaths of color, while rigid geometric shapes open out into free forms.

Maya Hayuk's Clocktower Gallery project is supported in part by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts.
