Maxine Price expertly paints abstract and contemporary paintings of rich color with thick, juicy pigments applied with great gusto and expression. She works in series, limiting herself only to her imagination, the medium of oils and the use of the palette knife, which she expertly wields as her sole application tool. Her subjects cover a large range of interests and ideas and may include landscapes as well as abstracts. Her concepts often encompass an explorative theme, taking notice of the accidental beauty found otherwise unnoticed things such as decaying buildings and weathered walls. Just as there are layered meanings in these weathered surfaces, Price uses the technique of layering pigment and texturing with oil paint, richly applied with the palette knife, allowing each layer’s relationship to the others play an important role in the piece as a whole. She often uses found objects such as wire, old string, louvers and rusted objects to add to the illusion of time passing, further accentuating her perception. An artist and writer who collects Price’s art has stated, “The paintings of Maxine Price are quite spiritual, yet are simultaneously a reflection of our physical connection to the world. Her paintings are portraits of existence-both impressions and expressions of life and nature that have the look of antiquity, the feel of the Southwestern United States and Mexico, yet are quite contemporary.” Maxine Price is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in art and is a resident of Wimberley, Texas for over a decade. She shows in the Gallery on the Square in Wimberley as well as several others in every major city in Texas.
