Lucy Maki: Out of the Blue

March 11, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Exhibit 208 is once again proud to host our fourth exhibition in eight years of one of New Mexico’s premier abstract painters, Lucy Maki, opening on March 11 through April 2, 2022. Lucy has been creating unique, elegantly arranged shaped works for over 40 years in New Mexico. She was a fixture in the Santa Fe gallery scene in the 1980’s through the 1990’s showing with the respected Linda Durham Gallery. Lucy received her MFA at UNM in the late 1970’s and has lived and worked in Albuquerque ever since. Her work is represented in many private collections as well as many museums.

The exhibition Out of the Blue comprises works completed from 2021-2022 and continues the exploration of the shaped canvas as an image-object. The show includes small dimensional paintings as well as large shaped canvases. The focus for this show is on the spatial effects of color from bright and vibrant hues, like neon pink and electric blue, to murky shades and subtle pastels.

Integrating approaches from abstract expressionism, Russian constructivism, minimalism, cubism, and New Mexico’s mid-century transcendentalist painting group, with a variety of materials (paint, wood, fabric and paper), a uniquely varied presence for each painting is conjured. Geometric structures combined with painterly techniques and/or felt surfaces, balances hard edge with gesture and touch.
