Expansions: Maxwell McMaster @ Avenue des Arts, Los Angeles
Updated: Feb 8, 2022
Maxwell McMaster’s new body of work, Expansions signifies an opening in the artist’s practice, while articulating recurring themes. Prompted by a personal spiritual path, as a guiding principle in life and work, he conceptualizes art as grounded in the immaterial. The birth of a new idea, or a new painting, is envisioned as open and fertile ground. Borrowing Expansions from jazz keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith‘s 1974 album, McMaster highlights his indebtedness and influence of a spiritual consciousness on the 1970s cultural imaginary.
