Max Mortiboys

Max Mortiboys paintings are as much about the denial of gesture as being a celebration of gesture. His work involves drawing, painting and scanning practices, with the idea of extracting and magnifying constantly.

His large scale paintings arise from an instinctive, almost chaotic process. This involves pulling apart and reassembling visual and material components.

The thick and unforgiving house gloss paint he uses, corresponds directly with the heavily primed white canvas, elevating every mark.

Hidden in the clean finished aesthetic of the paintings, a few tricks and games subtly occur. Be it the sudden ruptures in movement or variations in line and colour.

For his latest body of work, he uses a limited and bold colour palette on large scale canvas, translating the essence of his textural inspiration in a stripped back style into his own gestural language.

Max Mortiboys graduated from Chelsea College of Arts in 2018.

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
