Maya Green is an artist who achieves the effect of matching of intensive colors. Expression of emotional feelings of reality is well balanced in her art. Being an artist is not an occupation for her, but rather a state of mind. Upon being questioned about why she is doing what she is doing, and what she wants to say with her art, Maya Green answers, "I'm an artist because it's my nature and, in a certain way, my instinct; I can't live the other way. When people see my paintings I'd like them to be happier and kinder." Indeed, Maya's paintings express emotions with a broad and rich texture. Her expressive language of colors won't leave anyone indifferent. The usage of an interesting technique in combination with bright colors singles Maya out from other artists. Maya Green uses a palette knife because it allows her to apply pure color, delicate lines and, perhaps most importantly, to express energy that no brush is able to capture. She paints in oils because they have a beautiful palette and give live, vivid colors. She tries to listen to her intuition when it comes to choosing color or light. Her favorite one is ultramarine because this is the color of the sky and sea and it’s just mesmerizing. “For me, the piece is completed when I have an irresistible feeling to walk into it and enjoy walking there, if the picture is scenery for example,” says Maya Green. She does everything differently from what she was taught because she believes that it’s impossible to teach to create art; it’s either existing inside of the artist or not. There is a pattern of happiness in Maya’s works. She’d like to make others happy through her art. When her work is going well, she has a feeling of satisfaction. That means that she has something to share, something to give. She doesn’t take the decision to start creating a picture. The picture actually selects her to bring it into life into reality. According to Maya Green, during the process of creation of an art piece, she immerses into a different dimension where she loses the track of time; then she comes back either with a picture or not. Many years spent in Tiberias Rivera have taken an impact on themes and a bright palette in Maya Green’s art pieces. Therefore, her pictures represent mainly landscapes. Answering on questions about her last collection, Maya Green emphasizes. “When I pass by beautiful sceneries, it’s never enough time to look at them through the window of a car. In my pictures, I try to catch the moment (stop the car) and give people the opportunity to look at that natural beauty and take a break from a daily routine. It’s important because people are so busy nowadays that they easily forget that they’re part of that beauty.” Maya’s pictures are full of light and color because the artist has proven that colors heal and provide inexhaustible positive energy.
