Using vibrant force, fluid performance, and the classical dignity of representation, Max Dowdle’s work realizes his subjects with expressive color and dynamic brushstroke. Dowdle’s technique weaves within his works a sense of sublime energy coupled with impassioned realism. The equal pursuit of color, line and mass gives Dowdle a distinct perception of external nature. His application of paint is soft and exact or vigorous and spirited, as demanded by the occasion. Humanity in its varied environments presents endless inspiration to create living moments on the picture plane. Dowdle’s training in Old Master traditions combined with contemporary influences provide a unique toolbox to capture impressions of nature and the emotional world around him.
