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”.
'Nothing could come between her and a child in need', was used as part of World Youth Day, Sydney and in the Brisbane 100 Concert, representing 100 years of Mary Mackillop. This was captured on DVD and is on the official website for the canonisation of Mary Mackillop. Since 1997 his work has been reproduced as prints by leading British publishing company Prime Arts. One of these pieces was in the final two of the prestigious international print competition in Amsterdam in 1998. John Maitland now has over 40 works in print worldwide.
