Do Not Prejudge

Moon Series Invitation

One afternoon, I walked into a gallery in West Hollywood to see the work of another artist. After a bit of time the gallery owner looked at a few of my smaller ink pieces that I had with me. He immediately offered me a solo show.

The gallery owner wrote the following blurb that appeared on the other side of the invitation:

“Eden Maxwell’s work is a pure celebration of spontaneous creation and the marvelous potential for expression within us all.

“In Eden’s work, a single viewing is just the beginning. Over time and at different distances and angles, his artwork grows increasingly intriguing and satisfying as more complex shapes and subtle forms integrate into a seamless panorama of the humor and drama of life—an act of artistic alchemy that cannot be planned or duplicated.”

Opportunity can appear anywhere.
