Max Gimblett ’50

Max Gimblett is an Auckland Grammar Old Boy, attending in 1950 and 1951. Max’s practice is rich with varied influences and philosophies, from abstract expressionism to Eastern and Western spiritual beliefs.

Known for creating distinct canvas shapes, such as the quatrefoil, Max expresses his energy through painting and continues to experiment with form, colour, and precious metals in his practice today. Bridging cultures and spiritualities, his work is based on concepts of consciousness and enlightenment, which manifest in brightly coloured gestural abstractions.

Gow Langsford Gallery has represented Max since 1988.

Max will have works in one of the eight houses on the Tour.
