This is a fascinating celebration of 50 years of artistic work from renowned painter Max Gimblett. In this illuminating book, three close friends of artist Max Gimblett bring together their astonishing talents to present a portrait of an artist in his fiftieth year of painting. Alexandra Munroe and Lewis Hyde are colleagues, friends, and long-standing supporters of Gimblett's practice. Munroe's interview flows through Gimblett's thoughts, his spiritual beliefs, his philosophy, and his life as an artist, with great intimacy, kindness, and respect. Hyde's foreword explores a quatrefoil painting - Gimblett's signature shape, see left for example - from the idea to the finished painting and all the magic and alchemy in between. Jason Schmidt, renowned photographer of artists and culture, spent a day in Gimblett's studio taking hundreds of photos, offering his unique vision of Gimblett's domain.
