Spanish/German artist Max Gärtner will be opening next week “No Line in Fire”, his new solo show at the BC Gallery in Berlin.
The artist, who considers himself as an explorer ,continuously finds inspiration for his multifaceted work in the animal kingdom and his surroundings.
In “No Line in Fire” Max Gärtner gives shape to his personal journey in an attempt to describe those things that cannot be described in a rational way so he does not try to communicate through verbal or written language, but instead makes them appreciable for the viewer through his art.

“There are encounters in life, which are accompanied by an incredible force and which, once experienced, leave you convinced of their significance as messages from a higher universal power. It makes no difference whether these encounters occur within dreams or a waking state because the idea of a sole, true and singular reality is false and out-dated, and everything one feels, exists and as such may and should be considered a reality. This is an exhibition of portraits of some of the creatures I have encountered and who have influenced the course of my life on a fundamental level. I do not know how else to describe it, other than encounters with extremely old souls, which I would like to identity here, free from any religious connotations, as gods.” – Max Gärtner

The exhibition with all new works will open next Friday, November 14th at 6pm at the gallery space at Libauer Strasse 14, 10245 Berlin and it will be open until Dec 27th.
