In her works Maria wants to show a connection between animate and inanimate. For example, a living person, nature and a lifeless interior. It is important for her to depict the human body as a living organism, to show human condition or emotions in her portraits. Her main concern is the human…Show more condition. The space, an interior or a piece of furniture are devoid of emotion – only the sitter is alive in a lifeless space.
Maria’s works focus on being physically present in a defined space. She aims to grab the attention of the viewer and ground them in the present moment.Show less
"I particularly like Maria's nude portraits which carry a great poetry and sensitivity. They remind me of Lucian Freud where the viewer is challenged by the direct and truthful portrayal of the naked woman yet alongside this awkwardness there is a sense of calm and beauty. Her compositions are technically advanced and her use of patterning is unique and intriguing."
