Max Werner illustrates the figurative beauty of his artworks.

Max Werner

 “My work has been described as realist, figurative, descriptive, and narrative. It cannot be limited to just one of those adjectives, yet each has an element of truth.” – Max Werner

“Brancaster Beach,” Acrylic and Canvas by Max Werner – Star of the Week.

WAS THERE A PIVOTAL MOMENT WHEN YOU DECIDED TO FOLLOW YOUR PATH AS AN ARTIST?

“No.”

CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK FOR US?

“My work is figurative; each image I create tells a story, so the work could also be described as a narrative.”

WHAT DOES YOUR WORK AIM TO SAY?

“It is not aiming to say anything. It is there for people to see and enjoy. They can interpret it the way they want.”

“Heavy Traffic In Wyoming,” Acrylic and Canvas by Max Werner – Star of the Week.

HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR WORK FITS WITHIN SOCIETY IN OUR PRESENT TIMES?

“Frankly, I have no idea.”

WHEN LOOKING BACK, WHAT ARTWORKS COME TO MINDA THAT MOST RELATE TO YOUR LIFE STORY?

“All of it relates to my life.”

WHO ARE YOUR BIGGEST INFLUENCES?

“Hieronymus Bosh, Rembrandt, Turner, Toulouse-Lautrec, Edward Hopper, Charles Russel, Magritte, Hergé, Bartolomeo Dos Santos.”

“Through The Burned Forest,” Acrylic and Canvas by Max Werner – Star of the Week.

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS?

“I sketch a lot, and drawings usually begin the creative process. In addition, I often use photos as references to help me complete works that are not entirely coming from my imagination, such as landscapes.”

WHAT VISUAL REFERENCES DO YOU DRAW UPON IN YOUR WORK?

“My surroundings most of the time.”

ANY UPCOMING PROJECTS?

“My wife and I have just set up an etching workshop, and after a 20 years hiatus, we’re planning to make etchings again.”
