Limitless is a new exhibition from young Toronto artist Maxwell N. Burnstein exploring the relationship between art and environmentalism, distorting landscapes through analog collage artworks to challenge climate change.
“Original photographs of the earth’s surfaces are broken down with an x-acto knife to reshape the physical boundaries of our environments,” Maxwell tells us. “The artworks present a fractured reality of earth as heat waves, desertification, and deforestation as well as rising sea levels that are reshaping the planet.”
“The first public installation of the series focuses on Miami as one of the most impacted regions of rising sea levels in the United States,” he adds. “Changing ocean currents, the limestone foundation and storms are resurfacing South Beach to the Keys.” Patrons can view the four artworks at the W South Beach (2201 Collins Ave) this upcoming weekend (July 13-16) in partnership with Paraiso Fashion Festival.
