Internationally renowned and locally, to Brisbane Australia that is, beloved, artist John Maitland has returned for a two week show at the Red Hill Gallery. His work will be on display from September 1st to September 14th, 2023.
John Maitland’s latest body of work, titled A Jewelled Palette, features motifs of spring, elusive butterflies, and endless starry skies. His skillfully executed oil and acrylic paintings are informed by figurative expressionism and imbued with rigorous colour and texture to denote emotive nuance. The work achieves poignancy through a unique perspective which resonates throughout his cohesive presentation.
“In recent months I revisited North
Queensland, and it had an
intoxicating effect, a huge moon
and starry skies that went forever.
I’ve been asked a few times, about
my very early series, ‘Children and
the Moon’. So, I’m delighted to say
I’ve revisited that series with the
memories of my recent trip still
fresh.” ~ John Maitland
