Max Freund's cosmos is the epitome of the multivalent. Whether in material, technique, concept or art-theoretical superstructure – Freund extends the maximum spectrum in each of these aspects and offers the recipient a multi-perspective view. It is a survey of numerous points of view conceived directly from life, just as Freund also draws material directly from everyday life. For example, when he transforms a bed sheet into a painting surface, sews a scrap of plaster or laminates printed paper onto canvas in order to work out a new middle ;eld between drawing and painting. The meticulous collection and redefinition of material is essential in Freund's work, the working out of potential from the seemingly inconspicuous.
