Max Middleton

After several decades of painting, exhibiting and teaching followed by an extended period of reflection and research I am at last able to see the tunnel at the end of the light.
In my recent paintings I have endeavoured to capture the essence of a person in the marks and colours of paint on the canvas. They are not portraits, in the traditional sense, but rather a sensation by sensation record of a lengthy visual and emotional relationship.
Underlying all that I do is a conviction that an understanding of the figure, gained through careful observational drawing, is fundamental to my work.

Max has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions extensively and has work in private collections in Australia, Eire, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, the UK and USA.
