Statement

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California. Maidy studied under the tutelage of cognoscenti’ Richard Swift / Stanley Hayter; founder of Atelier 17 Paris, France, and received her Master of Fine Arts Degree in Printmaking and Sculpture.

 

 “Art is a form of communication between the artist and the viewer. Art is about vision, and how that vision is expressed is what can create a strong emotional pull for the viewer. Maidy’s art is about expression and emotion; subtly evoking underlining implications and reflection. She draws the viewer in and allows them to be captured by the essence of a piece. 

 

Maidy’s work can be found in public and private collections in the United States, Japan, Europe and Canada. Her artwork currently featured in a solo exhibition at Tohoku University, Japan, and is showing in ArtExpo 2014, New York, Spectrum 2013 - New York, and Spectrum 2013-Miami by invitation. A dedication ceremony for her sculpture “Infinite” was held 1/20/2014 at Scripps Clinic Carmel Valley, where it can be viewed in the main lobby first floor. Her work is catalogued within The Smithsonian Institution Archives, The Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum, the Chicago Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, the Museum of Women in the Arts (Washington, D.C.), and the New York Public Library.

 

 “The act of creating is an emotional release; it centers one, giving an inner peace which allows us to reflect not only on who we are but how we think and feel.  I realize now, that the pride of being an artist comes not from what one sells, but the inner peace one derives from the act of creating.”
