Harlem Nocturne

Harlem Nocturne

MAX FERGUSON/1985

The work of contemporary realist painter Max Ferguson possesses an unmatched cinematic quality: infusing nostalgia and narrative through heavy contrast and photo-realism. His personal touch is evident in this piece with meticulous attention to detail, light, and shadow. Ferguson’s unique use of nostalgic expression has earned him recognition through countless solo and group exhibitions, highlighting his skillful execution and mastery of atmospheric cityscapes. Focusing particularly on the streets of New York City, Ferguson's work captures the essence of everyday life. In the case of 'Harlem Nocturne,' he presents a universe of moments inviting viewers to immerse themselves.
