Somewhere in your unconscious mind is a wide and empty blue sky, a golden plain, and a white house with a red roof.
A Freshly Baked favourite from way back, Max was born in 1987 in Katherine, NT (Australia). Since completing a Bachelor of Design at the College of Fine Arts, his art practice has led to numerous projects and exhibitions in Australia and abroad.
Working across multiple mediums to produce paintings, drawings, sculpture, jewellery, murals, stickers and paste ups, Max lives and creates in Sydney, Australia.
My work depicts landscapes. They are endless horizons or alternately landscapes, cast adrift as floating masses. Among such scenes, the presence of the home, or figures engaging on a metaphysical level with the home, act as a reprieve to the indeterminate and barren nature of places. The relationship between the characters portrayed in my work and the ground is all-important – my work speaks to the way that individuals navigate our world and the importance of the places that we find shelter. - Max Berry
