Max Patté Opens His Miramar Studio for Collectors And Public
Revered Artist Max Patté Opens His Miramar Studio for Collectors And Public Audiences!
Acclaimed British born Wellington-based artist Max Patté opens his incredible Miramar studio to both private and public audiences from May 29 to June 1st. The main studio will showcase stunning new lightworks and paintings from the last 12 months. Visitors will also have unhindered access to all areas of the working studio including archives and will have the opportunity to talk directly with Max in situ.
With new works available for sale, collectors and fans of Max’s iconic art are encouraged to visit the studio to fully experience the work. “Giving the collector access to the studio offers the opportunity to understand the process involved in what are highly process-driven, technical, labour-intensive works. Opening the doors offers another insight to the finished article. It helps build a personal connection to the work” says Max.
Much loved for the Wellington waterfront sculpture that launched his career to New Zealand and the world – Solace In The Wind, Max Patté has delivered a canon of work over the last eleven years that has attracted an impressive stable of collectors and a large fan base. New works on show in the studio open week include: new painting series Droplets; new additions to his Infinity series – Circle Line and Anthozoa; and debuting limited-edition prints including those produced by the world renowned printer Grieger in Dusseldorf. There will also be the opportunity to see some of the impressive new works currently in process.
Whilst employing the latest in digital and material technologies and striving to push the boundaries of art meets science and maths, Max still draws inspiration from mother nature and the natural environment and it remains a driving force in his work. He regards the state of the environment and our oceans as the most important and urgent issue of our time. As such 10% of all sale proceeds will be donated to the Mountains to Sea Wellington charity who deliver inspiring freshwater and marine education programmes for schools and communities across the greater Wellington region.
The public open day is scheduled for Saturday June 1. The public experience is something which is important to Max and his team. Much of the work never sees the light of day before going into a collection where it may only ever be seen by a handful of people. Max wants to extend the opportunity to view some of these works to anyone wanting to experience them in this unique creative space.
Following this studio open week Max will head overseas for 4 months to explore international opportunities in Europe and New York.
