The Mayan work refers to images of other times, memories of a distant past. Its almost monochrome paintings, in clear and soothing tones, bring objects and environments in close range to the real: a wedding dress involves a body that does not exist; an angel comes off of a porcelain figurine of rococo; a chair and a hover luxurious and empty table in the corner… On their screens, Maia throws us into the untouched and waterproof environment rich living rooms or dining, an uncomfortable atmosphere between comfort and tension, between ostentation and austerity, between excess and empty, between opulence and loneliness.

Behind the beautiful atmosphere, delicate and feminine of each object, certain strangeness, like something was out of order. Behind the seduction, luxury and whimsy, a world of appearances, superficiality, silences and absences. Through adornments, Maia speaks of happiness stereotypes, where the female is very present. “The seemingly romantic paintings of Maya have their own life and are, above all, disturbing. The contrast between the symmetry and balance, Maya assigns drama to unpredictable results scenes ", says curator. The exhibition can be visited from Monday to Saturday, from 11:00 to 6:00 pm (except holidays).
