Max Korinsky

If one observes the silent, mostly deserted paintings of Max Korinsky, a kind of surreal atmosphere can be felt, which not only arises because its interior represents the first half of the past century, thus being a present idea of that time, but also because peculiar elements like trees in the interior or irritating proportions in the image appear.

The reenactment of the past often brings distortions, reinterpretations and new construals with it, precisely because this past is seen in connection to the present. Korinsky´s paintings might seem outdated at first glance, but he plays with today´s views of certain times. His focus lies in the connection between personal fascination of these past decades and today´s clichés, which the artists tries to implement in his art and which often lead to seemingly odd atmospheres.
