MaiYap’s abstract work is the compilation of a lifetime observing human nature and natural phenomena from flowers to lightening. It’s an attempt to depict the world as it is right now; a place of immense beauty yet violent and in conflict. Life’s energy mixes and explodes in a cornucopia of pure colors which are painstakingly applied stroke by stroke, layer by layer, like weaving a tapestry with paint. The result is a piece that grasps you with an unexpected undulating force. Subjects like hope, happiness, love, pain and frustration seem to constantly permeate throughout the experience. She calls them Confetti. She believes that life is about learning how to dance with whatever gets thrown at you.
