This show is a celebration of the many forms of life that continue
to live and evolve on this planet. With the growing reality of global
we are being reminded that we do not live in a stagnate environment.
The world is constantly changing. It used to be a lot different from
the way it is now, and it will continue to evolve. With the realization
that things will change, perhaps we will learn to better appreciate
what we have.
We live on a giant rock filled with amazing creatures like elephants,
lions, giraffes, and rhinos. Giant male Walrus's weighing a ton stab
each other in the neck for rights to impregnate the female. The Octopus
will expand and contract the colored cells in it's skin to mimic it's
surroundings for camouflage. Fur, claws, fins, trunks, beaks...these
are all tools that were born from billions of years of trial and error,
and we are alive to witness these tools in action.
I hope these paintings
serve as a reminder of the beauty and perfection of nature and compel
to take action for yourselves and the planet
at large. Look up from your screens to lock eyes with an organic
living creature and reflect its boundless beauty by being an organic
creature yourself. Unleash yourself. You are alive.”

Max is known for
his "delightfully twisted" aesthetic and
wild live painting shows. Fueled by his fascination with the physiological
psychology of the creative act, he believes that artistic processes while
informed by science, ultimately come from the unconscious limbic system
of the brain and are mysterious. "The subject is just an excuse
to paint the line. It's the line itself that speaks, and it always
speaks the truth."
