Maya Irving is a visual artist currently based in Wurundjeri country, Warrandyte. Maya works with colour and texture to convey her experience of both her inner and outer landscapes.
Her work is intuitive and responsive, seeking to inspire curiosity, playfulness and self reflection.
She often begins her artworks through a process of free-movement with minimal expectation. When she paints, she falls into an embodied state, devoid of a critical mind.
Maya has featured in a number of group exhibitions and fundraisers. Just recently she held a solo exhibition at Brunswick Street Gallery titled ‘Your Weight in Me,’ a sensual and vulnerable expression of her experience processing washes of grief and trauma.
