Maia Green is an Australian painter living and working on Yugambeh land, in South East Queensland. I am influenced by the Australian landscape and interiors layered with nostalgia. My eye is constantly drawn to the colours and textures of the natural environment, the green rural landscapes of Northern NSW in which I grew up; and the coastal and hinterland landscapes I am now surrounded by. It is these experiences that inspire my paintings.
In my work, layers of varying opacity and intricate textures interplay in an aim to explore a uniquely Australian harmony present between the natural and manmade environments. Usually small in scale and unimposing, my pieces act as a reflection of quiet moments in time; a reminder to hold space for a moment of beauty.
