April Marie Mai
Overland Park, KS

My work utilizes bright colors, simple patterns, and textures to explore the collective human unconscious abstractly. Painting and fiber are used in much of my work, along with a variety of other media. The hand is always visible; it provides grounding and breathes life.

Variation and accidents enthrall me, and I eschew rigid technological uniformity in all aspects of my work. My purely abstract works are playful and colorful and are an instinctual exploration of the reactions humans have to color and pattern. I break things down into the simplest pieces and play with the different ways they can be recombined, seeking to understand my own basic responses to visual stimuli, and thus something of humanity as a whole.

To grow my career, I need to build my network in the arts community and develop my art business skills. My disability has worsened and I am working to find a way to make a living without the ability to hold a regular job. Art is my path forward.
