All Things Wild and Innocent

One of our most internationally prominent artists, NYNZer Max Gimblett exhibited at San Francisco’s Haines Gallery in April. The 30 year New York resident’s refined and harmonious canvases are created utilizing a process akin to alchemy. Says critic Alan Bamberger: “I considered the considerable logistical challenges Max Gimblett must surely hurdle on the way to completing his art, including mastery of unconventional uses for unconventional mediums (polyurethane, polymers, gold, epoxy), and especially the skill and attention which he devotes to his art’s edges (why so many artists think that nobody’s ever gonna look at the edges, I have no idea, and I can’t tell you how much art I see with edges that absolutely suck). Considerations duly considered, Max Gimblett gets thumbs up, hands down.” (25)
