Artist Statement


Inspired by the process of “How to paint” instead of “What to paint”. Max’s abstract painting investigates the notion of speed in relation to his customization of tools and mediums. He challenges the paradigm of conventional painting by exploring alternative methodologies and materials through the metaphysical involvements in painting. In addition, to the elements of chance and its aesthetics, Max constructs surfaces that constitute to the process as painting.
