Maki’s oil paintings are difficult to describe, impossible to explain. Spacescapes, landscapes, skyscapes, cloudscapes, innerscapes. Shapes and colours silently beckon one into oneself, guide towards the discovery of the hidden truths we hold most dear, our own truths. Portraits of despair and grandeur and distortion and hope. First inspired to pick up his brush in 1985, Maki has since been committing his sensitivities to canvas.
