John Molloy Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition
of new paintings by New York based artist Max Estenger, from
March 6 through March 29, 2014. Estenger has been working
with his particular language of non-representational art for the
past two decades.
In this exhibition, Estenger continues his exploration of disparate materials – raw canvas, clear poly-vinyl, aluminum and wood panels – to create multi-paneled, spray-painted works of art. The new paintings show an obvious refinement of Estenger’s process, as well as an unusual dedication to the formal strictures within which he has chosen to operate. The resulting interplay of surface, structure and color presents new formal and conceptual possibilities for abstract painting.
A fully-illustrated 28 page catalogue will be available in both book and digital format as of February 22.
