Earlier this month Max Kauffman opened his solo exhibition Your Vulnerability Makes You Beautiful at Loakal Gallery in Oakland. Folk-tinged, and stylistically defined by his watercolour colour palette of brown and blue hues, Kauffman’s work within the exhibition presents subject matter of broken down houses and landscape elements reclaimed by nature. There’s a level of calm and delicacy within the chaotic compositions, full of details that emerge and reveal themselves the further you look into Kauffman’s paintings.

The Bay Area artist also painted a mural inside the gallery space as part of his installation as seen on our pictures courtesy of the gallery below. The exhibition runs until October 2nd.
