Graham Beck: I've spent the morning thinking about your paintings. More than anything else, they cause me to remember my own teenage years. Do they work like that for you?
Maximilian Toth: Definitely. I can look back on those years and see things that I wasn't able to see at the time. That time begins to make more sense, and so certain memories and stories accumulate as a narrative that feeds the decisions I'm making as a person. I'm interested in those loaded memories and stories in my work.
