MAX COLE (1937, Hodgeman County, Kansas)
paintings of Max Cole Kansas, 1937 consist of parallel horizontal and
small vertical lines and give an impression of purity and focus.
Stripped from compository elements and color, Cole’s work is a search
for content, content which she describes with the word “infinity.” The
content of the work is that what exceeds the physicality of the
painting. Cole finds this in a process of being lived: her art is an
internal endeavor toward the ultimate mystery.
