MAX COLE, book with etching

Max Cole was born in Kansas in 1937, lives and works in New York and is strongly influenced by her Indian-American ancestry. Since the mid-1970s she has devoted herself to painting using traditional techniques. In her paintings, which are usually large canvases, she superimposes on a structure made up of horizontal lines thousands of very fine perpendicular lines, very close to each other, which fill the space. The horizontal lines form the backbone of the composition and hold up the others, like branches and leaves. Resulting from a deep passion, it is an art distant from postmodern movements and their aggressive and explicit language.
