MMX Gallery presents the work of London based artist Maxwell Rushton, and for the first time since its completion his work; ‘Drawn Out’.

About

This work consists of four 10 meter rolls of paper, each filled with 4 repeated hand-drawn marks. 10 million marks in total, completed in isolation over the course of a year.

Maxwell was born in 1989, UK. He creates art based upon his relationship with today’s infused culture of commercialism, expressing both his rejections and obsession. This exhibition outlines an unavoidable spectrum between a world saturated in marketing and a life that resists it. Together the selected works show the lengths he has gone to adopt pop culture (with works such as ‘Share A Coke With Maxwell’) and to counter it (with ‘Drawn Out’). His work stretches from the durational and painstaking to the instant and humorous, however the use of his own blood is a reoccurring medium.

Maxwell Rushton studied at one of the only few independent art schools in the UK; Leeds College of Art, where he obtained his 1st Class Honours in Fine Art in 2012. His work was recently shown in a solo exhibition at West London Art Factory (London), Cellar Shows (Leeds) and has been included in group exhibitions at BCN Art (Barcelona International Art Fair) in Casa Batlló (Barcelona), The Brick Lane Gallery (London) and Hoxton Basement (London). His work has been recognised internationally through various talks, and publications, such as Frame Magazine, Art Reveal, Culture 24, Collective Wisdom, Sick Chirpse, Sweet Station and 365 Days 365 Artists. His work was recently used as an example of ‘The Glamorisation of the Gothic Moment’ in a MA lecture, UCL London.
