Maxim Probst, artist of ART Galerie 7, Cologne

  In 2011 Maxim Probst received his Master of Fine Arts from the Alanus Academy of Art and Community from Prof A. Orosz. The male body is the focus of his works, which is transformed into an object. The nude bodies can be viewed like the monuments of the cities that are visible through a window in the background of some of his paintings.  The spectator is given the opportunity to undisturbedly gaze at the aesthetic and athletic bodies and to perceive the world from the artist’s point of view. He purposely gives his canvases an ancient look, which makes them appear like antiques. The focus of Probst’s new works lies on diamonds, which viewed from the bird’s eye perspective, turn into architectural objects. Probst skillfully visualises the phenomenon of reflection by depicting the colourful splitting of light that refracts in the smoothed diamonds. Through the contrast between the rough und untreated canvas and fascinating colour spectra, the illuminating power of the shiny particles becomes even more intense. So that the artist, besides his figurative works, found a new abstract topic.
