On View: Maya Hayuk’s “Alles Klar” at Die Kunstagentin

Technicolor maven Maya Hayuk recently opened her solo show "Alles Klar" at Die Kunstagentin in Cologne, Germany. Sparsely hung on the gallery's white, painted-brick walls, the painter and muralist's neon creations have room to breath without overwhelming the viewer. After all, Hayuk almost solely uses neon hues, often overlapping them in kaleidoscopic patterns that subtly evoke folk art forms such as weaving. Each piece attracts the eye like a nexus of energy — as if Hayuk's intense color choices have a sort of gravitational pull. On a mural created at the entrance of the gallery, Hayuk turns up the volume, subsuming a corner of the space in refracted rainbows.
