Asian Calligraphy inspires Max Gimblett’s subtle, yet striking silkscreens. His monochromatic pieces contain expressive strokes that seem to create a language of their own. The ink varies from solid to translucent, enhancing the simple, elegant stroke as it seems to dance across the paper. Well versed in Western art historical concerns and Eastern, primarily Buddhist philosophy, he creates refined and resonate works that carry subtle associations discernible with time and meditation.
The artist has shown nationally at institutions such as the Queensland Art Gallery in New Zealand, Haines Gallery, San Francisco, CA, and the Genovese/Sullivan Gallery, Boston, MA. Max Gimblett's work is on loan from the Genovese/Sullivan Gallery.
