Artist Statement: One of a series of paintings following on from the splendid phases of the moon late last year...blood moon, super moon etc. All which were clearly visible from my Coffs harbour studio down on the beach using my grandchildren as models my aim was simply to capture the sense of wonder at both the spectacle unfolding and the sense of wonder of the viewer.
Medium: Acrylic on board
Dimensions:120 h x 60 w cm
CHG Director's Statement: John Maitland is considered by some “one of Australia’s most exciting artists” (John Norris, Prime Arts Publishing), while his works have been referred to as “possessing the exquisite line and colour of a Matisse”.
John Maitland captures children, people, families and indigenous Australians within their environment. His compositions provide insight into the personality of those within his paintings or their connection to the landscape, giving the viewer a yearning for life's simple pleasures. His figurative paintings are colourful, alluring, ethereal, dreamy and command a strong following.
