Featured Artist: Maya Batash

As a painter, my art is about tapping into one's unconscious emotions. I focus on the inner beauty of the world around us, rather than on the external appearance alone. I want to make people feel, as well as to see. Although my paintings have elements of reality -- my hope is to transcend reality, and invite the viewer to enter that unelaborated space, where an awareness of one's soul and of a higher power can be felt. Similarly my films are about using the senses to go beyond the senses--using music and visuals to create an experience that is powerfully felt, rather than merely understood.
