Maxi Clement’s fascination with bronze casting whilst studying at Falmouth University, lead her to rural Suffolk, where she now works and lives.
“My journey to make work has taken many turns, like the windy roads of an Italian hillside”
Since childhood vivd memories of travelling through landscapes have become recurrent themes in her work which are still resonant and meaningful to this day. Rolling Italian hills, architectural shapes, flat Romney marshes, Cornish Cliffs, urban materials, Suffolk skies.
Max’s surroundings are the basis for the shapes and structure in her work. Using abstract landscape interpretations Max plays with ideas of layering shapes to describe her internal and external experiences.
