until 01.02. | #3209ARTatBerlin | janinebeangallery presents from 20th August 2021 the exhibition Echo with paintings by the artist Maxwell Dunlop.

The artist is creating ambiences of peculiar gravity, spaces which narrate with suspense on the one hand and reveal a wide, calm timelessness on the other hand.

On the one hand, his rooms are vast, open natural landscapes with mountains and skies full of clouds that extend into the valleys. On the other hand, Dunlop shows interiors of magnificent halls and representative foyers of a bygone, “classical” era.

Although these interiors are thoroughly marked by civilisational design and history, they still seem strangely large, deserted and dark, as if after their inhabitants have moved out. Human artefacts are placed here in distant perspective, like visiting a museum outside opening hours.

Maxwell Dunlop points out that he does not base his interiors on concrete models, but rather associates set pieces of his memories and ideas. The same applies to his landscapes, whose very personal pictorial compositions adhere to the inner show rather than wanting to repeat the real visit to a place.

The “echo”, the reverberation of his paintings, corresponds to the artist’s inner sonar, with which he sounds out and reproduces his socio-cultural and natural experience.
