Untitled – Allen Maddox

$38,000.00

 

Allen Maddox (1948-2000)

Born in Liverpool, Allen Maddox arrived in New Zealand in 1963. He studied at the School of Fine Arts, Canterbury University under the influential Lithuanian expressionist artist Rudolf Gopas.

Maddox is widely recognised as being one of New Zealand’s leading proponents of abstract expressionism and he is best known for his painterly, and sometimes violent, use of an X motif, said to have developed after the crossing out a rejected work. The motif has been interpreted in a multitude of ways, including as ‘something of a self-portrait‘, and as ‘a symbol of anonymity, failure, Christianity, the unknown, the illiterate‘.
