Out of my Woods, 2018 | Max Brosi, Ireland
Oak | 5 x 5 x 5 in/13 x 13 x 13 cm

Geometric multi-axis tube forms are my woods, my comfort zone, and what people expect to see from me. I strive to make these as visually simple and minimal as I can. Since last summer I have concentrated on simpler forms again, the hollow form, stepping out of my personal woods, where clean flow of line, proportions and volume are paramount. Certainly nothing new or ground breaking, but a personal challenge to create tactile, balanced, and calm pieces that carry the same design language in terms of natural and honest surface and texture as my other work.

About the Artist:
After training as a furniture designer at The Furniture College, Letterfrack, Max’s work expanded to small boatbuilding and hollow wooden surfboard construction. For the past several years Max has specialized in sculptural forms, turned, carved, and sandblasted from green oak and Spruce, often in combination with rusty steel elements. His work focuses heavily on the tension between stark geometric forms and the natural distortion of green wood as it dries.

Since 2014 Max’s work has earned numerous Irish and international accolades including winning the woodturning category of the RDS (Royal Dublin Society) National Craft Awards in Ireland and having received an Excellence Award from the AAW (American Association of Woodturners). In 2016 his work appeared in a special Collectors of Wood Art exhibit at SOFA Chicago, "Why Wood?".
In 2017 Max took part in the International Turner’s Exchange (ITE) at The Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia. His work is included in private collections in Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland and the USA.
