About the artwork

In Max Kong's series of wooden artworks, one can visualize the Japanese Zen aesthetic and principle of Ma (referring to empty space), removing all internal walls or obstacles to open up the space between interior and exterior. Max uses the simple beauty of natural elements and perfect geometrical patterns to create elegant structures, which eliminate all non-essential forms, features or concepts. Through his nuanced technique, the artist creates a visual rhythm in his works, such that they change shape and perspective as the viewer looks from one angle to the other.
