Photoblog: installation views of an exhibition of Maya Hayuk's mural paintings at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, on view through January 26, 2014.

The museum press release notes: "With their symmetrical compositions, intricate patterns, and lush colors, Maya Hayuk’s paintings and massively scaled murals recall views of outer space, traditional Ukrainian crafts, airbrushed manicures, and mandalas. Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into her elaborate abstractions, creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices while connecting to the ongoing pursuit of psychedelic experience in visual form."
