Max-Karl Winkler expresses profound mystery and grace embodied in landscape and the human figure. His art is informed by his fascination with myth, history, and language and influenced by Maya and Aztec sculpture. His recent work has been executed in pen and ink, woodcut, wood engraving, watercolor, and oil painting, with additional interest in more complex techniques and formats such as: the multiblock color woodcut, the reduction woodcut, and the whiteline woodcut.
The title of Max-Karl’s exhibit is not coincidental; the artist will be presenting various versions of the same image in different media to illustrate his artistic choices and processes. Accompanied by minimal text, Max-Karl Winkler’s works are meant to be interpreted by the viewer based on their individual perception and not intended to be interrupted as they make their own personal connections to the art.
