The Whitespace Collection is open for public viewing every Sunday from 1 – 4 pm.  You’ll want to make a bee line to get a front row seat to see Beatriz Millar as she prepares and then bakes her bread goddesses.  Max Toth, whose artwork is installed at the Whitespace Collection site will be on hand to greet art patrons.  You can view two fascinating videos about his installation here:


In addition to Max and Beatriz, many of Whitespace’s community-based artists will be present and will offer a special limited edition video project for Whitespace.  Karla Walter  will present new work for previewing at Whitespace during Art Palm Beach.

The Heart of Contemporary Art is at Whitespace Collection

Elayne and Marvin Mordes continue to give a gift of contemporary art to the community through their Whitespace Collection.  While visiting Whitespace one connects with the newest contemporary artists world-wide.  The Mordes’ have their fingers on the pulse of what is emerging in the field. Their bus trips to Miami (you can still sign up for the second and third dates) offer a bird’s eye view of this domain.  With changing exhibits throughout “season”, Whitespace Collection is a must for the art lover.

Maximilion Toth

This exhibition of large-scale paintings and wall drawings by artist Maximilian Toth is shown alongside two films done in collaboration with artist Sarah Lasley.  The work explores the unapologetic  assertion of youth in the harsh face of mortality.

The primal urges of Toth’s line based figures fuel their games of conquest, loyalty, power, and pecking order. Each individual seeks their place within the group as well as in the world. The walls depict King of the Raft, a battle fought to be ruler of a floating,  bird-shit-covered, putting-green kingdom. A child king’s rule is retained only until they are thrown over into the surrounding waters. The new ruler revels in their status, until they too are overthrown and the struggle for power continues. Whether on land or at sea the scavengers engage in snow ball brawls, roman candle battles, and skirmishes around a blazing bonfire. They move in a writhing pack, roles and authority shifting, leaders crowned, usurped, swallowed, and replaced. In a world where games are played in an attempt to defy limitations, a raft becomes a kingdom and a snow fall is a war cry.


Toth’s paintings of initiation are brought to live action in the films War Party and Pumpkins. While the paintings concentrate on youth’s declaration, the films portray the realization that vitality is fleeting and the body is fragile. In light of this truth, Toth’s subjects find all the more reason to celebrate.

EENA’s Formula:  Feminine Bread Sculptures

– EENA is a female name and means “Renewing”. Every bread sculpture has it root in its own name:  Marl-eena, Yasm-eena, Hel-eena……
– EENA is also the short form for “European Emergency Number Association”.  My EENA will save and make safe all who call on her…  the feminine savior!
– Formula: something magical on the way to find the right combination between different essences,to find solutions, to win, to be healed, to love, to read signs in daily life.
EENA will find it. She tries and tries.  EENA : Goddess or witch!!!
