'Cont-Exis' by Max Presneill

Cont-Exis opening May 11th is the latest offering from British born artist Max Presneill. Max is hot off exhibitions in both Germany and England, showing alongside the likes of Gerhard Richter, Sol Lewitt, Daniel Richter, and David Hockney. In an Australian exclusive Max will be joining TWFINEART from Los Angeles for the opening.

Max Presneill is interested in what the act of painting means and how it can explore multiple avenues of enquiry simultaneously. From existential questions, to an awareness of presence and mortality, to notions of masculine codes, all can be encompassed, for Presneill, within the structures of thought and application of material that painting represents. 

” When I die my paintings are what will remain. They contain my memories, hopes and dreams. An identity of sorts and the drive towards cognitive meaning, all within the political possibilities in painting.”
