1963 Corpus Christi, TX, United States

As a natural successor to Abstract Expressionism, Jumper Maybach's paintings embody the incendiary and explosive passion that characterized the truly American movement. Born of the nuances in trauma and healing, Maybach's works are weighted. The profound expression of both tragedy and healing is highly resonant and their sweeping beauty is undeniable. Works such as Hate No More, Can’t Fix Stupid, Aliens of The Universe, and Red Rocket, represent the spontaneity, the frenetic joy and the subversive messages swaddled in childlike expression that distinguish Jumper Maybach's unique style of painting. These are the qualities that link him so clearly to the great American tradition of spontaneous abstraction, with Art Dubai dubbing him the 'The 21st Century Jackson Pollock'.


Jumper Maybach's painting explores political concepts through the frenetic and organic forms that inhabit his canvases and interrogates social commentary with subversive deftness. At times, the messaging is subdued, a subtle slow burn; while often it is hiding in plain sight, offering a juxtaposition between abstraction and literal that speaks to the duality inherent in his personas. 


Born Ben Workman in 1963, the artist that will come to be known as Jumper Maybach formed ideas of self-worth and, like us all, self-hatred through the adversity and trauma of a socially fraught 1960’s Texas childhood.  These cornerstones of identity are acutely perceptible through the mixing of raw emotion and the perceived disorganization of color, line and form that coalesces into a world of explosive instinct. His paintings beg the viewer to step into his world of intuition through his playfulness and at times childlike wonder to walk with him to the better world he creates on his canvases.
