Call To The Beyond
Art is a portal through which I engage the complexity of the world and journey into the depths of my inner experience. I integrate an educational background in Fine Art Illustration and Gender Theory, along with my spiritual practices, to explore the layers of self-identity and delve into the realm of the collective subconscious in search of higher truths.
Making art is a catalyst for transformative growth, through which I deepen my understanding of the cycles of life, death, and renewed life. I explore how modern women channel mythical archetypes and become empowered through a connection with animal spirits and nature.
“Call to the Beyond” centers on a girl who could be engulfed in a storm of sorrow or reach out demanding the sun to rise on a better tomorrow. As a girl, she has little power in the outside world, but inside, she has already begun to feel her strength and the taste of magic. She calls to the ravens to bring her knowledge from the beyond and her spirit flies free with the birds and the sea.
My paintings are dynamic and bold with a fearless use of color, and my artwork has a sculptural quality with great attention to detail that supports the intensity of the message.Maya Just Maya, “Call to the Beyond”, Oil on Canvas, 50″X30″, $4,000
