Max Seckel | Red Truck Gallery New Orleans
Working in a variety of media (gouache, acrylic, latex, silkscreen), I echo in my work some of the complexity and uncertainty I perceive in the world. Simple objects and everyday occurrences are thrust into absurd and sometimes contradictory circumstances. More information than can be processed with a simple glance is presented all at once, as a landscape viewed from a shifting and uncertain perspective. I aim to create paintings that are difficult to describe, like a dream or memory that has become hazy and difficult to recall through time but still seems certain and familiar. A lingering impression of clarity and specific purpose that readily becomes mired in its own details.
