Anno Domini presents...

The Season in Hell by Maxwell Holyoke Hirsch
debut solo exhibition of bold paintings and delicate drawings

Maxwell Holyoke Hirsch

Embracing muses from the streets of experience to the mazes of subconsciousness, from the ruins of history to the traces of the future, the work of San Francisco artist Maxwell Loren Holyoke-Hirsch is a bold articulation of human potential. Ambiguous toward boundaries and keen on variety, these works stand in the wake of an artisan's constant and simultaneous tearing down, building up, and re-invention.

A Season in Hell is at times a stream of consciousness depositing abstract spectrums across a canvass; at others, thoughtful hands carving geometric forms into two-toned wood. There's obtuse volumes interpreted from the urban habitat and organic figures conjured from surrealistic mindscapes. This results in themes of alignment and opposition: love and madness, joy and despair, calm and obsession, order and chaos, becoming and dissolving, inheritance and innovation, hope. A non-narrative story told by experiencing, the work presented here is an era defined, a moment in the journey towards our fullest potential.
