The exhibition REFRAIN by Max Freund is at Connolly, 4 Clifford Street London.

Max Freund, born in 1992, is a Vienna based painter and his works bring together ‘diverse sign systems that modulate the hieroglyphics of our time’. As described by, ‘Through paintings, drawings and artist books he enables depictions to turn to pictograms and shift between their own resonance. The dyed, reworked and overpainted surfaces link with accurate line drawings, raw gestures and immediate colour combinations.’ His interest in diverting materials from their intended use, placing them next to each other and overlaying them with thick oil paint, shape the haptic feeling of the image that is so often lost in these digital days and the uncertainty of the Anthropocene epoch where evidence of humanity’s impact on the planet is overwhelming.

After graduating in 2017 from the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Max has participated in various national and international exhibitions such as Kunstverein Wolfenbüttel Germany, G/ART/EN contemporary art space Italy, Studio H13 Lyon, Art Book Fair - Modern Art Museum Shanghai, Belvedere 21 Vienna, Westergasfabriek Amsterdam, Delphian Gallery and others. Recent fanzines and books were published with Nieves Books, Soybot and Quintal Éditions.
