“Max did not paint or draw over the past two years. He couldn’t find the time or the peace to do it. He only ever did abstract art. Totally abstract art and rarely colour as he was colour blind. No one at all, except myself and his sister, have any of his art work. He never gave it to anyone. It was far too personal. Any art you have seen anywhere on line is not his.”
“I want to let you who care, and I know there are a lot of us, that Max’s art was complex and precise. Detailed and alive. If you know modern art you will know Miro. When Max was born I put postcards of Miro around his Moses basket. Strangely enough his art followed that style. He was only a month old before those cards were removed. I’m just saying his art is unmistakable It’s him. Not pretty. Complex and raw.”
