Max Greis
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



ARTIST STATEMENT: The Archaic Armageddon Max Greis The world is changing faster than ever, from global warming and the loss of ecosystems, to the destruction of indigenous cultures and peoples. I create landscapes that reflect this theme, penetrating time and space in an exploration of the process of disintegration. Whether in painting, diorama or video, I utilize collage to create a globalized vision built from many individual landscapes. The world that emerges is composed of my forms, thoughts, and narratives. I call it the Archaic Armageddon. My work evolves out of three distinct genres from art history: The technique of collage and paint remembers the dada and surrealism tradition to create a dream-like, otherworldly atmosphere. The stylization and perspective have been influenced by the formalism of Asian landscape paintings and prints. Last, the apocalyptic sensibility of the narrative is inspired by the work of Bosch and Bruegel.
