The exhibition entitled “Channel 7 (GBDF)” is a series of visual musical compositions where the 7th Channel denotes the G chord in the musical scale. The number seven is a mystic and spiritual number that is synonymous with creation. In this series Maxwell ponders the subject of creation, involution and evolution. Maxwell’s work has always grappled with the origins of Man.
Inspired by Carl Jung’s, “Man and His Symbols, Joseph Campbell’s, “The power of Myth”, and hermetic literature, Channel 7 ponders the universe before time, from the ‘Big Bang”, evolution, to the present through mythology.
The tale of time is told through a series of songs or “Odes” that are expressed visually. Part of the process in creating these works is, Channeling. It becomes a meditation where, Maxwell is having a conversation with the Universe, watching his hand recording the dialog. The recordings are like scriptures written in a mixed language of the past and present, merging the aesthetics of primitive, hieroglyphics, classical art through graffiti.
