The first solo show for Tim Maxwell, a student from the MFA Fine Arts Department, will also be the opening exhibition for the new Williamsburg gallery, Marvelli Lab, an extension of the Marvelli Gallery in Chelsea. Maxwell derives his visual language from tattoo art, which is noted in his large-scale drawings. The work plays on double levels of mesmerizing close-ups and energetic compositions. Maxwell’s solo exhibition and Marvelli’s Lab will be inaugurated with a party on Friday, December 19, 7-10pm. The Lab, 167 North 9th Street, will present Maxwell’s work December 12, 2003 through January 25, 2004.
