The act of painting dominates the world of Marise Maas. As she pursues her need to capture beauty within the everyday, painting has for her become a form of daily meditation, helping to douse feelings of worry or concern through the act of paying attention to the ordinary things she encounters through the course of a day. The appeal of Maas’ work lies in this admission that life, for the most part, happens within the rather uneventful ordinariness of daily routines and interactions; the bath is run, the phone is answered, the light bulb is changed. It is while surrounded by these small things that the greater highs and lows of life unfold. Maas states, ‘’I’ve always been interested in glorifying the banal. If you look closely at the smaller detail, you’ll find huge stories’’.
