Through abstraction, Maureen explores the borders between painting and sculpture and also examines the intersections between materiality, space, and image. In her ‘Reflections’ series, the imagery recalls water, sky and light, often interpreted as playful, dream-like and mysterious. She has carved out her own ideas of space and created a body of work that is a metaphorical journey of inner discovery and transformation. Maureen was born in Singapore but currently maintains her studio in New York City.
For the busy, self-reliant New Yorker, there’s often not enough time in a day to get everything done, let alone to engage in a bit of introspection. Maureen Hoon is an artist who incorporates her urban environment into her abstract work, creating a space for New Yorkers to acknowledge that which they subconsciously internalize on a daily basis.
