“Creating is extremely private. The distance must exist once I am in the tug of war between institution and elaboration. Still, I hope my artworks can reach beyond explanation.”- Maya Hewitt
The figures, elements, graphic arrangements and color collocation in Maya’s artworks seem simple and daily. However, it makes people feel absurd and disturbed. The human behaviors in Maya’s paintings seem to be intimate but alienated, and the vacuous eyes appear to be indifferent to all surrounding in the world, the mysterious expressions of soul, life and death, and all of these boost our desires unconsciously to interpret the hidden gems behind the symbols and hints.

Maya Hewitt is an English painter whose work has a subtle Asian influence, inspired by Japanese culture as well as by her half-Filipino heritage. A talented figurative painter, Hewitt’s exotic narrative landscapes form an artificial space, constructed and staged in a state of suspension. They travel between the real and the fictional, between human and supernatural energies, and between artifice and nature. Her paintings are presented as environments of connecting plots or pieces within a larger narrative, and use symbols to explore the notion of reality and fiction. Personal symbolic objects draw references from across time, cultures and myths.
Maya’s artworks had been collected not only in Europe but also widely in Asian countries.
