Visit the Shooting Gallery next month for Mike Maxwell's latest art show. Like all good art, his work has subtext and meaning, man. From PR:
Our history makes us who we are today. Historical events, relatives and family lines brought us to the point where we stand in today’s society, therefore knowledge of the past creates a better knowledge of today. Mike Maxwell focuses on sex, science and religion in his next solo exhibition “Supernatural Selection” opens on Saturday, February 9th 2007 at The Shooting Gallery from 7-11 pm.
Mike Maxwell’s work has been based on his love of history and science. Depictions of blue faced historical icons such as, Abraham Lincoln and Darwin, bring us a vibrant vision of our not so long forgotten leaders in revolution. In past exhibits he has questioned humanity, conceptuality, genetics and consciousness, just to name a few. The paintings and illustrations re-invent human race and growth through beautiful bright and intuitive creations of the past and future. Maxwell’s addiction to the history and reading actually contributed directly to the increase of financial support to his local library where his checkout numbers bumped the library into the higher funding category. The curiosity and constant re-education of himself drives the acclaimed Maxwell to create these beautifully intelligent and expressive visions of our existence.
Come one come all to join us for this exceptional exhibit “Supernatural Selection” new works and illustrations by Mike Maxwell. Opening reception is on Saturday February 9th 2007 from 7-11 pm at The Shooting Gallery.
