  • Exhibited: Brand Library Art Gallery in 2017 - "BRAND 45 Works on Paper"
  • Notes: An accomplished printmaker and painter as well as sculptor, Maidy Morhous was born in New York and currently creates out of her studio thirty minutes north of San Diego. Morhous received her Master of Fine Arts degree while studying at Stanley Hayter's Atelier 17 in Paris in the mid-1970s. Before returning to the States, she then traveled to Italy to further her studies in casting techniques at the Fonderia Artistica–Marinelli Foundry in Florence.

    Morhous expresses herself through the medium of bronze, which allows her to portray extremes, from the soft flow of water to the harsh asphalt pavement of our world. Her work encompasses the pop art concept of presenting commonplace objects as fine art. It is meant to engage viewers and to allow them to contemplate and pull from within, to disengage for a moment from the outside world.

    Morhous continually searches to portray her environment in the world today. Her contemporary still life paintings pull viewers in while forcing them to question what is being viewed—be it life and one's existence, the plight of the world, or merely something to bring a smile. Her idiomatic titles prompt metaphorical interpretations and hint at multilayered meanings.

    Maidy Morhous is currently showing internationally in museum exhibitions and galleries; her work can also be found in public and private collections in Japan, England, Europe, Australia and Canada.
