Published by RADIUS BOOKS.

Over the course of five decades, California-based painter Max Cole (born 1937) has refined her visual language into a series of vertical and horizontal lines, and a restrained palette of gray, black and white.

With up to 80 layers of paint, her paintings also comprise areas of unpainted linen, subtly interchanging the texture of paint with the texture of fabric. Upon closer inspection, these paintings reveal tiny, imperfect hatch marks that, when examined from afar, oscillate. As Cole says, “The result is quiet, inward and meditative, transcending the physical.” Cole developed as an artist in Los Angeles in 1964–78, began showing at Sidney Janis in 1977, and then moved to New York, while also maintaining a studio in Germany and exhibiting in Europe during the '80s and '90s. She now lives and works in the Sierra foothills of northern California. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA and Albright-Knox Art Gallery. This volume presents an overview of Cole's career over the past half-century.

Contributions by Max Cole, Reinhard Ermen, Giuseppe Panza di Biumo, Laura Mattioli Rossi, Richard Vine.

Max Cole's formal vocabulary, refined over a period of three decades, suggests an attempt to reduce painting to its bare essentials. Cole's insistent horizontal stripes, the most immediately striking element of her work, refer not only to landscape--that most stabilizing component of human perceptual experience--but also the wave forms which we associate with the transmission of energy. Her work displays a preternatural power of concentration, and af control over the interpenetrations of pattern and noise. Cole's paintings give us a glimpse of the infinite. Born in Kansas in 1937, Cole began exhibiting her work in the early 1960s. Her work has been shown at numerous museums and galleries internationally, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. and the Whitney Biennial. She has also received several prestigious grants and fellowships, including the Visual Artist's Fellowship and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
