Brand new paintings by artist Max Kauffman. Of this body of work, Kauffman explains: “Much like a musician, large chunks of the last few years have been spent on the road. My work has looked at the concept of balance for the last 8 years or so. As I’ve done art full time while maintaining some sort of ‘my own life’ apart from that, this meta-narrative continues to have more importance. For me, this requires being able to recharge and be steeped in silence, and some trips need a few weeks/months to bounce back from. Thus, most of this year has been spent holed up in the studio digesting and reconsidering… everything. Right now I feel more like a gardener than an artist – taking the time to nurture my thoughts, as long as it takes, then figuring out how to apply them to this new format. That patience and trust pushed the work in new ways. I moved from my comfort zone of the last decade of paper to applying that technique to panel and into an entirely new direction with linen.”
