MAYA HEWITT All Along The Shadows

Maya Hewitt is at the forefront of a younger generation of artists exploring a return to painted figuration. Yet, though figurative, representational and expressive, even – the paintings depict an anxiety apparently borne from the artist’s particular living environment and sub-cultural interests.

Hewitt, presently based in London, has participated in numerous exhibitions internationally including, most recently Passion Fruits, Thomas Olbricht collection, Berlin (2010), Nocturne, Bischoff Weiss Gallery, London (2010) and Elusive Dreams which travelled from La Cathedrale, Paris to the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art (2009). Hewitt studied at the University of Brighton, Camberwell College of Art, Winchester School of Art as well as the Nagoya University of Art in Japan and was a participant in residencies under the auspices of both Tokyo Wonder Site and the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation. In 2010, Hewitt collaborated with noted Tokyo-based jewelry designer Yoshiyo Abbe (Petite Robe Noire) on the exhibition Stones in Paws.
