Max YawneyLeft Foot/Skyline is a large scale installation, combining a photographic image with sculptural elements.

Max Yawney’s art focuses on presenting disparate elements in an effort to provide an untenable situation for the viewer. The distinction between the two elements (paintings, photographs, sculptures, etc…) is crafted in a manner similar to writing a poem or a song. A poet will struggle with the word to word connections similar to a composer placing note after note in succession. The particular qualities of each element, size, imagery and materials are assigned so as to temper each element against the other, ultimately yielding a particular aesthetic experience.

The use of distinction as the subject matter aligns the artwork with the context of the viewer in that we function based on our continual stream of perceptual discernment of the distinctions in the world around us. Our intellectual development is an amalgamation of these distinctions, thus the platform for understanding that which we are currently experiencing is linked to the context of our lived experience.- Max Yawney
