Maxwell Handler began his artistic career painting meticulous oils in a photorealistic style, later displaying elements of Pop, Minimalism, and Conceptual art in his images. He is best known, however, for the polished resin-on-wood paintings that he began producing in the ’90s and continues to make today.
