Artist Statement: I'm using metallic paint in my recent works to impart a lustre and excitement.
In this work I've used blue and silvers—the blues give a sense of calmness to the subject of mother and child whilst the silver emphasis the harmony, bond and feelings between the two figures.
Medium: Mixed media 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.
