> DESCRIPTION

In Hairshirt, his first solo exhibition in California Max King Cap brings his paintings of paradise to Santa Ana’s @Space Gallery.

A seminarian from Chicago Theological Seminary pronounced his work, “fascinating”. Time-Out Magazine compared it mysteriously to “Gardening at night”. Cap’s rich, layered paintings are both fascinating and mysterious. Taking his cues from astronomy and renaissance gardensthe artist weaves together the earth and sky, Eden and Heaven, to create visions that are recognizable but defy identification.

The artist knows something of hell, too. Separated early in life from his parents and raised by a series of strangers Cap has always longed for a place in that mythic garden. “The expulsion is quite real for me. I was very young when I had to learn to manufacture my own paradise.”
