Max Brand and Joanne Robertson: Poppies

Max Brand and Joanne Robertson: Poppies

Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) presents the debut collaboration between Max Brand (b. 1982, Leipzig) and Joanne Robertson (b. 1979, Manchester).  The exhibition features new painting and sculpture by these exciting, emerging contemporary artists, together with a musical work co-produced in the lead-up to the exhibition’s opening.
 
The show brings together two international painters, who also work as musicians.  Central to the exhibition is Brand and Robertson’s desire to ‘expand’ traditional media.  They paint directly onto the wall and floor, as well as displaying huge wall hung canvases, floor sculptures and hanging lights, all accompanied by a sound installation.  This approach transforms painting from something restricted within a frame to something resistant to containment.  Visitors can expect bright, energetic works that appear to have exploded across the gallery space.
