Maya Irving is an emerging visual artist currently based in Wurundjeri country, Melbourne. Maya works with movement, intuition and colour to convey her experience of both her inner and outer landscapes.
She is interested in the relationship between our sexual and creative energies. She believes that they live and breathe the same entity. To settle deeply within each space requires a great deal of vulnerability, curiosity and intention.
Maya builds up her artworks with layers of free-movement, mess-making and minimal expectation. Through this process she falls into an embodied state, devoid of a critical mind. Her work is energetic and responsive. Maya hopes that through sharing her honest, vulnerable self, it can connect with others in a way that is safe, warm and inviting. She seeks to inspire playfulness, self-reflection and a curiosity with the erotic self.
