Maíra Senise is a Brazilian artist based in New York City since 2015. She received a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Design at Puc-Rio De Janeiro. Upon graduation, she worked as a fashion and pattern designer for several Brazilian brands. During this time, she developed her artistic practice. The artist's works mostly with painting, sculpture, video, installation, and home objects and apparel.
The paintings and sculptures take shape within an imaginary realm where disconcerting fables and everyday feminine ornaments coalesce. This creative endeavor disrupts the passivity inherent in a seemingly childlike universe by forging deviations from conventional forms, intertwining elements of both the human and the animal kingdom.
The artist seamlessly merges abstract and figurative visual languages, giving rise to figures that possess a paradoxical quality — humor intertwined with existence in a disconcerting and violent universe, where objects meet their demise and are left abandoned. In this creative pursuit, all materials are fair game, ranging from traditional oil and acrylic to unconventional items such as glitter, shampoo bottles, nail polish, and everything in between.
