2001-05 BFA, Painting, Art History Minor, Art Institute of Boston
Max grew up on the coast of southern New England. He studied painting at the Art institute of Boston and received a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from 2001-2005. The paintings are a mixture of personal experience, art history, human history and physical properties of paint itself. The paint drips, splashes, and slides around the surface constantly contradicting the feeling of space.
These are works about the moment that paint becomes an image. They ask the question, when is it a flat brush stroke, when is it an illusion, and when is it both? These works exist in the realm where abstraction and representation vibrate against each other and viewer is left to make decisions about what they see.
They must engage and assemble the brushwork in their mind. They are pulled into an interaction with the marks and therefore an interaction with the subject matter.
