Artist | @maxberry
Artist Max Berry creates semi-fictional paintings that allows audiences to share in moments of simple observation, bucolic scenes and vignettes. With particular attention to line, colour and the play between light and shadow, Max reveals a single minded intent to slow time down. Max’s paintings work in concert: dreamlike images of memory, levitation, water, and clouds condense to produce a companionable silence - inviting the viewer to examine what they see for themselves.
