Maia Mellier is a multidisciplinary Visual Artist & Designer. She graduated with a first in Visual Arts Practice in 2014 from IADT in Dublin. She lives and works in Ireland.
"What I am most fascinated by is the experience of Art - the process while making it and the experience it gives to others. To create Art is a state of allowing, waiting and then following the flow of the idea when it comes. The work is already whole-form and complete just out of awareness and it guides me as I bring it into form."
Mellier’s work is deeply rooted in highlighting the importance of self reflection, self discovery, journeying inward and realising the potential inside each one of us. A large part of her practice has been creating machines, videos, soundscapes, installations and experiences specifically for museum and site specific settings. Photography plays a key role in her work as she expresses themes of metamorphosis in the individual and society.
"Observing moments of change and the realisations that come from that change is woven into my work. When mapped backwards echos of the future can be found like clues along the path that were guiding us all along."
