simultaneous elements that range from precise to tenuous, humorous to
aggressive, Max's work attempts to decipher and re-pose the gamut of
conditions and relationships he perceives out in the world. As he
responds to these inquiries, Max has been making intricately welded
steel sculptures with cast concrete, wood, string, and other elements.
Allied with his linear sculptures, he develops exuberant paintings that
freely navigate the geometries of architectural, natural, and emotional
space together with the arising inscapes of his imagination. Regardless
of media, the work anchors firmly in the exploration and mindset of
drawing. --Max Van Pelt
