Maxim Wakultschik


Maxim Wakultschik’s art consists of mathematically precise and accurately constructed works in which a formal order is created from independent individual parts. In his complex and multi-layered works, he explores the interplay of light and shadow, surface structure and color vibration. The focus is always on the effect that results from the reflection of the ambient light and leads to oscillating variations in reality that constantly challenge us to proactively approach the works. In the encounter with a work of art by Maxim Wakultschik, the smallest movement, the slightest change of perspective leads to astonishing new impressions.
This turns the works into kinetic objects in which the dividing line between reality and illusion is blurred. As flexible constructs of the individual, Maxim constantly invites us to overcome the limits of our perception. He combines materials such as paper, plexiglass, metal and wood with the more classical painting materials such as canvas, oil and acrylic. A unique artist who, among other things, uses “simple” toothpicks to awaken his works to a three-dimensional view.
