Characteristic of Maier's work is the de-individualization of humans and objects, which is expressed in a sketch-like painting style. The people in her paintings are reduced to silhouettes and vague facets. They are not the image of a particular person, but rather an idea of them. Particularly striking are the large round mouths, with red lips framing a black or pink hole. Even the eyes are often nothing more than black sockets. Just as little information is provided through the clothing, which mostly consists of uniform-like, monochromatic full-body suits. As a result, the emotions of the characters remain indeterminate, as does their age, origin, and gender. The lack of individualization turns the figures into a projective surface for the viewer, who can freely decide what to read into them.
