Lucy Maki: Pointless Pleasure
March 13, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Lucy Maki: Pointless Pleasure @ EXHIBIT/208, 208 Broadway SE, Abq. NM
Maki’s art ranges in scale from large shaped paintings to miniature constructions/wall sculpture and encompasses a wide variety of processes, including poured paint, sculpted metal, and wood, mixed media assemblage and collage. The concern is to treat painting as an image/object, bridging oppositions of concrete/illusory, flat/dimensional, deliberate/accidental, geometric/organic, and or, figurative/abstract to create unexpected contrasting effects and complex imaginative states of being. For her upcoming show, Pointless Pleasure, at EXHIBIT/208 in Albuquerque, Maki brings together opposing elements, reframes and recontextualizes them, to create uniquely contrasting decorative shaped paintings and constructions made solely for the enjoyment of looking-seeing.
