Abstract constructions by Lucy Maki.

EXHIBIT/208 is delighted and honored to host a show for one of New Mexico's premiere abstract artists, Lucy Maki. Her work has been shown in New Mexico for many years and she was a fixture at Sant Fe's Linda Durham gallery for over 20 years. This is her 2nd one person show at EXHIBIT/208 in the past 3 years. Her constructions are in a realm of their own and are a visual gift for all to see. This is a show that must be seen and we are very proud to host it. She is an Albuquerque gem and fabulous artist. Don't miss this one!

Cabinet of geometries

“Seesaw” by Lucy Maki

Lucy Maki is a well-established visual artist who’s spent the last three decades living and working in Albuquerque. Her distinctive abstract work hangs in galleries, private collections and museums all over. Maki’s sophisticated three-dimensional canvases—part painting and part sculpture—explore what she terms in her artist statement “a play between real and illusive space.” The artist’s latest offering, ASLANT, unveils at Exhibit/208 (208 Broadway SE) on Saturday, March 1. To tell the truth, many of the pieces in her show could be hung on the walls of your doctor’s office … if your physician were Dr. Caligari. Just like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, the 1920 masterpiece of silent cinema entirely lacking in right angles, Maki's pieces eschew simplistic symmetries. Stretcher bars, which normally set the boundaries of a painting's area, are here exploded into a precarious profusion of angles around which squares and rectangles, lines and circles, space and negative space all teeter.
