A Solo Exhibition featuring the works of: W. Max Thomason
With the planned schedule of exhibits at Bitfactory Gallery canceled or postponed due to due Covid-19, and after months of social distancing, owner and artist W. Max Thomason, felt the time was fitting for a solo exhibition of his own work. The show entitled, Isolation features works that explore imagery of a lone, isolated figure, runs live at 851 Santa Fe Dr starting Friday, September 18 through October 25 during modified gallery hours Thursday through Saturday, 11-3 PM. There will not be an opening reception. Visitors are asked to follow safety guidelines as posted.
Every painting in the show studies a different emotional, spatial, and thought process experienced during months of self-isolation. The works are ethereal and shadowy yet also pop with color and presence. The skeletal silhouettes evoke the haunting feeling of living through a time of uncertainty and seclusion.
W. Max Thomason is a Denver based artist that works in the natural-realism, abstract and sometimes pop genres. He studied at Community College of Denver/Metropolitan State University/University of Colorado Denver from 1990-1996 under Amy Métier at Metropolitan State University of Denver and University of Colorado Denver. The greatest influence on his early painting years were the Fauvists of the early 1900’s and the realists of the 1960’s and 70’s. He’s participated in multiple group and solo exhibits to date in Colorado, Louisiana, Florida, New York and Austria. His artwork was also used as the album cover for the Carolyn’s Mother album Fridays and other Small Tragedies, released in 1995.
Bitfactory Gallery, located at 851 Santa Fe Drive in the heart of Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe, exhibits work by the best emerging and up-and-coming local, national and international visual artists.
