Mark Alsweiler & Max Berry "All Things Lost" exhibition at Nine Lives

Mark Alsweiler & Max Berry
All Things Lost

An exhibition of new works by two of our favourites Mark Alsweiler and Max Berry. Addressing the loss of the noble savage and the resulting dichotomy between reverie and the everyday.

Max Berry Lives and works in Sydney Australia, his work depicts meditative landscapes and seemingly vulnerable figures, whose calm isolation prompts the viewer to consider the relationship between the actual and the spiritual, agency and fate and the narrative in which they may co-exist.

Mark Alsweiler, born in New Zealand, now living and working out of Sydney has an affinity with the imagery of yesteryear which forms the basis of his work. His instantly recognisable acrylic paintings and wooden sculptures often involve themes revolving around a world of contrasts. Alsweiler's work sees the beautiful cooperation of opposites and a union where contradiction becomes complement.

Show opens Thursday November 24 at 6pm and continues until December 11.
