Max Werner

Often triggered by a simple observation of his immediate environment such as landscapes, Max Werner seems to love the challenge of an unusual composition, and the capturing of the diversity of light in the various places he travels to. Perhaps to get a deeper understanding of his work, it helps to know that Magritte is one of Werner’s favourite artists. Werner generally paints in his studio a few weeks after having seen his subject matter, using sketches and photos, but never relying on recorded reality.
