Hilarie Mais | Exhibition Catalogue
Hilarie Mais was born in the UK and lives and works in Sydney. Her work is characterised by a deep interest in the grid and its expressive possibilities. She makes abstract constructions and paintings that merge the formal structure of the grid with an interest in more organic forms found in nature. Mais?s work brings together formal geometry with biological and cellular structures to generate subtle visual experiences that are broadened expressively through the highly personalised application of paint.
As such, the apparent formality of her works is undercut by emotional truth and underpinned by an organic and intimate sensibility, whilst the handmade quality of the works functions to personalise, even ?feminise? abstraction.This beautifully designed exhibition catalogue presents a range of key works by Hilarie Mais made over the last decade and includes full colour reproductions and essays by co-curators Blair French and Manya Sellers.
