"My heart is on fire for you..."
This work is part of the "You are my number 8" series, a series about love, human connection and the universal experience. Mixed media on gessoed water color paper, these pieces represent your most favorite greeting card of all time on steroids. Laurie Maves has been painting abstracted figures for over a decade. The faces - especially the eyes - run together and cross over, signifying a merging of person to person as well as symbolizing the oneness of humanity. We are all one. Laurie implements handwriting in her artworks and utilizes free writing of her own poetry on most of her artworks with looping messages about love, hope and faith. Laurie Maves' latest series of circular abstracts are based on the conceptualization of healthy cells and the oneness of humanity. Simply called the Circle Paintings, this series in particular has been created to inspire others to love and to health. They are meant to be meditative in nature, organic reminders of perfect wholeness in the universe. The shape is an ancient symbol and can be seen in every culture, in every person, in every life that comes full circle. She hopes that her audience finds these paintings as promoting positive energy, relationships and peace.
