Michael Maxwell “Neo-American Transcendental” at Garis & Gahn

In his second solo exhibition with the gallery, Michael Maxwell presents 12 large-scale paintings that blend digital imagery with natural mark-making, which result in heavily-layered assemblages that incorporate the artist’s Neo-expressionist and Abstract Expressionist influences. The artist draws from disparate sources for the thematic basis of his practice. While recent investigations have brought him to the history of landscape painting, pastoralism, American Transcendentalists, and the Hudson River School, his work has been shaped by writings and research into the unconscious, meditative states, and neuroscience, in addition to philosophy and linguistics. This brain-body connection is paramount to the viewer’s understanding, perception, and awareness of art.
