JOHN MAITLAND

"One of Australia's most exciting contemporary artists"

The
Contemporary Master

My skillfully executed oil and acrylic paintings are informed by figurative expressionism. They are imbued with rigorous colour and texture to denote emotive nuances. The works achieve poignancy through a unique perspective which resonates throughout my cohesive presentation.

 

The built-up layers in my paintings are encouraged to crack and fissure which gives an aged archaic like surface. Broad, sweeping brushstrokes and strength of paint application evoke a rawness and beauty in an understated way. Painting in such a way that the viewer feels emotion at its purist, identifying and personifying themselves and their own story through my work…that is my ambition…that is my art.
