Maki Horanai

Painter
  » Mountain Dreams

Primarily a painter working on both canvas and wood, Maki Horani also works in ceramics and mixed media (charcoal, pastels, and pen.)

Maki and Hillel’s Gallery, Mountain Dreams, opened on Tamborine Mountain in 2006, on Gallery Walk. In 2010 we moved to a designed space in our home on Macdonnell Road, where we display Maki’s original paintings and ceramics. We also make books on handmade paper, with prints of Maki’s paintings and Hillel’s poems.

Maki’s work takes us into a her own fantastic world of dreams that exists both nowhere and everywhere, displaying a unique and imaginative combination of artistic sensibilities. Her work defies any single label, yet has its own immediately recognisable style, often touching or quirky, but always evocative.

Maki is not a prolific painter. She works on one painting until it is complete, anywhere from 1-3 months.

Tmac acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands we operate on, the Wanggerriburras people and pay my respects to elders past, present and emerging.
