Conny Maier’s works reflect sociocultural topics such as poverty, solitude and social conflict. She humorously and cautiously reveals social systems and their constructions. The artist acts as a silent spectator within the entity as well as a part of the whole while she confronts herself with critical questions and analysis of her own behavior. Maier’s stories are suffuse with the documentary narratives. The idea for her works are gathered while traveling the world. She constantly and spontaneously scetches people and situations on notebooks and pieces of paper, and these snapshots later find their way onto canvas. In her large-format paintings, geometrical forms, colorful surfaces and comfortable elements with abstract components blend together. The boundaries between poverty and wealth become blurry. What remains are collages of society. Conny Maier has had shows in Berlin, Paris, Lisbon, Cologne, Memmingen, Ulm, Vienna and Los Angeles.
