Maxwell Hyett Artist

Maxwell Hyett is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist. His work explores issues of meaning, simultaneity, and the relationship between language and reality.

Maxwell develops these ideas by creating collisions between synonyms and related terms to question the unavoidable connections we make between symbols and learned meaning. His recent work uses relief sculpture and laser cutting techniques to explore these ideas. Continue reading
