Lucy Maki lives and works in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She has exhibited nationally and in Canada and Mexico. Her paintings are in the New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe, the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, and the University of New Mexico Fine Art Museum, as well as, many distinguished private collections. She earned an MFA, with distinction, from the University of New Mexico. Her work was shown for many years at Linda Durham Contemporary Art in Santa Fe and New York. Maki's art ranges in scale from large shaped paintings to miniature constructions and encompasses a wide variety of processes, including poured paint, metal and wood assemblage, and collage. The concern is to treat painting as an image/object, bridging oppositions of concrete/illusory, deliberate/accidental, geometric/organic, and or, figurative/abstract to reach complex imaginative states. She is currently affiliated with Oeno Gallery in Prince Edward County, Canada, and Exhibit 208 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
