It is with sadness that Max has passed – all images have been removed with respect to Family.
Max is an Indigenous Tasmanian, born in 1965. He is from the Oyster Bay area, and Big River language group.
Max was a keeper of the Aboriginal sacred site at Oyster Cove for two years, at which time he experienced spiritual energies which have become a constant source of inspiration for his work.
This amazing artefact – a large Sawtooth “nose” is in perfect condition – shown here with Max Mansell (right) who painted it with his Dreaming Story. Is now in a custom case and on display at the Gallery. POA
We have a large collection of work available to view by appointment (08 8375 0630)
