Max Kauffman's work is a release – akin to meditation, a relief from the chaos of our day to day lives. Over the last two years, houses and architecture have become the zenith of my work. They are sanctuaries…somewhere to catch up, take a breath, recharge. The world I portray is sometimes yours and mine and sometimes a more magical place – I call it future primitive. It is a potential path or maybe just a way to reconnect with more pure ideas of culture from our past. It is knowing empires crumble, but accepting the growth that emerges in the aftermath.
