"In his Mt Victoria studio, Karl Maughan is slowly building a garden on a canvas. It’s the early stages of what will eventually be a high-impact artwork hanging on a collector’s wall: thick, dark paint strokes are interrupted by fluffy balls of pink and blue resembling hydrangeas, while the outline of a future path weaves up the middle.
This is where one of New Zealand’s most successful artists spends his days. A painting Maughan created in the mid-90s, inspired by Miles Warren’s garden on Banks Peninsula, hangs on one wall. A vintage train track he pulled out of a skip sits on a table, near Karl Maughan, a heavy, lush, coffee table book about his work which was released on Thursday (10th December)."
