Artist Statement:  "All we needed was to board the metro going in the right direction, the girls painted here, gave us, what turned out to be correct directions, the police were congregated and were all shouting non! and pointing in the opposite direction. Twenty minutes later we sat in a locked metro train with the porters laughing while waiting an hour or so , while it was all cleaned in a depot at the far end of nowhere". - John Maitland.

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.
