About the Item

Born in New York City in 1959, Max Ferguson started as a filmmaker, making award-winning animated films as a teenager. But it was while he was a visiting student at an art school in Amsterdam that his interest shifted to painting. “While my fellow art students were painting nudes of young women, I was painting octogenarians with canes.” "I am not consciously a contrarian, but it would seem that the louder and larger the work of my contemporaries grows, the quieter and smaller my paintings become.” "My work is essentially autobiographical," says Ferguson, with his two most frequent models being his father and himself. "The more personal you get, the more universal you become." "My paintings are generally populated by a solitary figure. In one sense it is a soliloquy. But there is someone else involved; the viewer. So it is more like a dialogue. It is that silent, emotional pas de deux between the two in which I am most interested." Ferguson’s paintings are in many prominent private and public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The British Museum, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and the soon to open Lucas Museum of Narrative Art.
