The Ramshackle Patchwork series is an accumulation of six month’s work initiated by a print residency in California in December 2019. After scouring Downtown Petaluma, Maxine stumbled upon the derelict agricultural building,

R.O.Shelling Grain and Chicken Feed: a fascinating tower of irregularities and beautiful corrugated iron.

It became Ramshackle Patchwork, true to its name. During the lockdown she disciplined a residency at home where she focused on paring back, extracting elements, playing with spaces and echoes creating a series of monotypes and editions.

This body of work is based on a journey made through the city of Barcelona, responding to the bohemian architecture, its ornate doors and windows, decaying walls, geometric pavement patterns and graffiti. As well as the beach and it’s looming cuboid, inspired by the rusty sculpture by Rebecca Horn. These complex, multi-layered screen prints are erased with sand paper then carefully overlaid with plasma cut etching, spray paint and Dremel drill drawings, reflecting the erosion and environmental changes in the city and coast.

This work was inspired by water, graffiti, letters and numbers found around the Bristol Dock area and graffiti behind Spike Print studios. Also spurring artistry were traffic road signs, a temporary Helter Skelter and several 1940’s Tank Wagons - with their rusting and decaying surfaces (originally used for transporting goods). In response, Maxine drew delicate ink drawings on mark-resist (clear acetate) before screen printing.

 

Maxine creates unique one-off, abstract images by layering a growing library of gestural marks; influenced by structures, colours, and shapes taken from the surrounding environment, combining multiple print processes with palimpsest-like erasure, capturing the essence of surfaces forgotten by time. Giving new life to the discarded and disregarded, thus appreciating the beauty in what may be deemed ugly.
