Maximilian Schubert merges the conventions of painting and sculpture to create works that exist in an in-between category of art. At first, this untitled work appears to be a white monochrome with folds of the canvas loosely attached to the stretcher. In fact, the fabric folds have been cast, evidenced in part by the network of cracks running through the work. The work reinforces the painting as a physical object, and records its disintegration and absence as it hangs quietly on the wall. Schubert’s work has been in gallery exhibitions in the US and abroad.
