An exhibition of paintings by Chilean artist Max Sir, will be on view at the Embassy of Chile in the United Kingdom from 6 July until 31 July. Taking elements from the novel Alice's adventures in Wonderland and its main character, Alice, this new series of paintings has been developed in various countries in Europe and selections of its body of 144 artworks have been exhibited in Berlin, Prague, Paris, Athens, and most recently were part of the Salon International d'Art Contemporain at Carrousel du Louvre (Paris, May 2018). A selection of artworks from this collection will be exhibited int he presence of the artist.
"A particular aspect of this new body of work is that every element in its pictorial language was previously conceived, designed, carried into the stage and brought into motion for a theatrical piece. The texture, the colors, the composition and every element in these paintings and sketches speak of decisions I previously made as a director/designer for the stage. These paintings are a living dialogue between the language of theatre and the language of painting, which interacts with what the viewers understand by reality."
