Hi­larie Mais at MCA

Where Sydney - - Where Now What’s On -

The Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Aus­tralia present the first ma­jor solo ex­hi­bi­tion of works by Sydney-based artist Hi­larie Mais. Since the early 1970s, Mais has con­sis­tently pro­duced work un­der­pinned by what she de­scribes as her abid­ing in­ter­est in the his­tory of ab­strac­tion, first in the United King­dom, then the United States, and in Aus­tralia since 1981. Fea­tur­ing 20 ma­jor works, Mais is best known for her con­struc­tions and paint­ings that merge the for­mal struc­ture of the grid with an in­ter­est in or­ganic forms found in na­ture. She seeks to per­son­alise ab­strac­tion by em­pha­sis­ing the hand­made qual­ity of her work.
