Maxime work consists in collecting and gathering bits and pieces and putting these loose parts back together again.

 

Creating a window

to the world.

The interplay between flat cut-outs and spatial appearance reinforces the graphical qualities of these paintings. Besides this, the flower works originate from an interest in Ikebana, the Japanese art of arranging flowers. The contemplative aspect of arranging and rearranging resembles the way in which Maxime lays out, reconsiders and fixes his images.

Through these masterful artworks that are comprised of a collection of found images of flowers and gardens these landscape are  pieced together in a jarring yet peaceful way.
