Max Cole

Endless Journey

SITE SANTA FE is pleased to present Endless Journey, a solo exhibition by New Mexico-based artist, Max Cole.

Featuring a selection of paintings and works on paper spanning 1962-2022, Endless Journey surveys over six decades of Cole’s ongoing career including many never-before-seen works. Cole’s iconic paintings invite viewers on a meditative journey through her lifelong investigation of rhythmic repetitive line and composition. The exhibition features over 30 works, including significant loans from the Tia Collection, Santa Fe and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Written like music or poetry, Cole’s lines are records of movement, keepers of time. The slight variation in each hand-made mark creates a visual echo that vibrates across the canvas creating a visceral and immersive experience for the viewer.

“Art is something that has to be lived. It is long and there are no shortcuts.”
- Max Cole
