26.07.20. new work from Karl Maughan & Barry Cleavin
Born in Wellington, painter Karl Maughan went to Elam School of Fine Arts in 1983, graduating in 1986. Maughan is best known for his fantastical, hyperreal depictions of blooming garden spaces.
Dunedin born artist Barry Cleavin is regarded by many as New Zealand’s most important and influential printmaker. Internationally recognised as a master of the printmaking craft, his usually precise and often cryptic the images offer a commentary on the world and its inhabitants.
Although he is one of NZ’s most collectable printmakers, his work remains very affordable – as a reflection of the spirit of printmaking having evolved centuries ago to bring art and ideas to a mass audience.
