UNSW Art & Design alumnus, Max Berry’s exhibition ‘Landscapes’ opens at China Heights Gallery on 26 June. His latest body of work comprises of semi-fictional paintings, bucolic scenes, vignettes and simple observation.
Max pays particular attention to line, colour, and the play between light and shadow reveals a single-minded attempt to slow time down. His paintings work in concert: dreamlike images of memory, levitation, water, and clouds condense to produce a companionable silence - an open invitation to the viewer to examine for themselves what they see.
In his work he explores how we inhabit the poetic space separating places, words and things? 'Landscapes' proposes a kind of magical presence in a world that is not quite our own but is, nonetheless, most welcoming.
