MAX PETRONE

HOW MANY STORIES CAN BE BORN FROM A SPLASH OF COFFEE?
Max Petrone tells us six tales, with a painting technique that develops without any preplanned design, but with an immediacy where “the first attempt is always good”.
There are no complex frameworks or sophisticated elaborations, but only simplicity and playfulness.
In this collection, multiple characters take form in a story that starts almost by chance and lends itself to the interpretation of the beholder. The protagonists of Max Petrone’s tales are adventurously searching for something, exploring their worlds to find it, each with their own path to follow.
For their stories to continue, they need the time and the imagination of the people who have caught a fragment of them, perhaps as they sipped their coffee. Each cup carries with it the trace of a tale told by the artist, suggesting characters and settings, inviting everyone to spontaneously contribute to the narrative, in a dialogue that is refreshing and sincere.

When they saw the world from afar, everything seemed so perfect.

Exploring the Universe, we often discover that our everyday reality is made of things that are truly incredible.

It was only upon entering the cave, that he could finally see the light.

This is the story of fish that travelled in search of something. Maybe it was the pearls the sea keeps safe, or maybe it was something more.

They met by chance one day;

but perhaps it was not chance at all.

This is the story of a longed-for encounter, and of all the seas in the world that were crossed to make it come true.

It seemed to him he saw a dragon, and yet instead it was just a man with a hat.

Max Petrone wears his hat whenever he meets any of the characters who are part of his life. Who are they?

What deeds will they accomplish?

Life takes directions

that often we had not foreseen.

He said at the crossroads.

This is the story of an arrow that was looking for its target, and until it found it, kept on turning.

Let’s see each other. Let’s see each other in the mirror or in a dream. Let’s see each other in a coffee.

Whose eye is it that gazes on? What does it see or does not want to see? The artist wants to see only that which is beautiful, because “even the eye must have its share”.
