Karl Maughan (Hardback)

Edited by Valentine, Hannah
Edited by Stead, Gabriella

For more than three decades, Karl Maughan has created intricately painted gardenscapes, developing his own visual language to explore the forms of nature and the nature of form. Born in 1964 in Wellington, Maughan studied at the Elam School of Fine Arts before moving to London in... 1994. His works can be found in the local collections of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu and the Wallace Arts Trust, while internationally he has been collected by major arts organisations including the Saatchi Collection and the Arts Council Collection, London. He now lives back in Wellington. Maughan's paintings present idyllic yet unsettling enclosed spaces, characterised by their claustrophobic and colourful atmosphere. Ever faithful to his garden subject, Maughan continues to captivate his audiences with contemporary interpretations of an age-old subject. This first book on one of New Zealand's leading living artists features more than 150 beautifully reproduced images of Maughan's work, while writers and artists from New Zealand and the United Kingdom explore the deeper meanings of Karl Maughan's painted gardens.
