Composition in Green

An oil painting titled "Composition in green" by Max Standley (1942-2013) and dated 1969.
Visionary artist, Max D. Standley, was born in Wichita, Kansas in 1942.
 He lived on a secluded 40 acres, deep in the forests of Arkansas. This lifestyle gave him the freedom to immerse himself in his oil painting, engraving, poetry and drawing -- the result was intimate paintings that vibrate with realism. Standley's work begins in the realm of realism, and develops with hints of biomorphic and magical imagery, showing a depth that continues to surprise, delight and move us.
"My work is a part I play in nature's drama and is a form of self development," said Standley. "Archetypical symbolism is an integral part of the process."
