HUMAN SERIES 1
Max MakewellMax Makewell’s 19 years of classical art training is the context that created his lens of abstraction. Rooted in the artistic principles and painting techniques of the old masters, Makewell perfected portraiture and sculpture through the mediums of charcoal, oil paint, and stone carving. Dissecting cadavers informed his deep, visceral understanding of the human form, and his mastery of classical techniques allowed him to transcend the physical form and explore the inner workings of the mind. Makewell’s work is an abstraction of the human spirit: a visual interpretation of the infinite complexity of human spirituality and emotion. His work creates a clearing for deep introspection. With his visually arresting colors and vibrant bilateral symmetries, his work elicits profound emotions and internal monologue, inspiring new levels of self-awareness for the viewer.
