Karl Maughan’s ability to present and celebrate the garden, and the viewer’s inclusive role in it is achieved by a process of scale exaggeration, perspective alteration, colour intensity, compositional rhythms, and “feel”. He is looking for the surprise between image and realisation, and it is precisely this that sees his paintings transcend their components and architecture. They become more.

Maughan is using a fluid drawing-based style on top of his customary painterly process. This change has augmented the developed language of his works and enhanced his ability to paraphrase as well as his power to imply and state. The result is that there is a dance of visual rhythms across each work which achieves harmonic resonance and yet retains the hallmarks of accuracy and the sculptural dimension fundamental in his paintings.

Born Wellington, New Zealand 1964. Bachelor of Fine Arts, Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland 1986. He completed one year of Master of Fine Arts in 1987 and has exhibited regularly since then. Karl Maughan has been exhibiting at Milford Galleries Dunedin regularly since 1993. His work is represented in important public, private and corporate collections throughout NZ, as well as in significant international collections. In 1997 he was a finalist in the John Moore Painting Award. In 1998 works included in Charles Saatchi Collection. Featured in Saatchi Gallery exhibitions 1998 and 2001.
