Max Bailey

Heritage Gallery

The clean, somber stillness of the sea is evoked by Bailey via hard-edged, simplified forms. Understated mysticism broods poetically in his solid, rich, silky, flat blacks as well as the rest of his generally restrained and eloquent palette. For Bailey, the beach is an environment in which to carefully place pebbles and contemplate the variety and significance of the few basic forms indigenous to its surroundings.
