March will be an exciting month for our artist friend Max Kauffman, as it will mark his first solo show in a notable amount of time! Kicking off March 6th at the Push Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina, Kauffman’s works will be up on display through the end of March.
Entitled “Ghosts of Industry,” the show focuses on what the artist describes as the “frailty of spirit, currently felt by many.” In these hard economic times, Kauffman’s pieces celebrate life brightly, with minor abstractions in the form of bleeding paints and hastily drawn shapes merely hinting at chaos.
Most of the pieces on display are mounted on board and encased in resin, making these web pictures lackluster by comparison. Expect thirty new paintings utilizing watercolors, acrylics, and gouache, as well as an installation developed exclusively for the gallery.
