Contemplate all that is zen with John Maxon‘s EIGHT wonderful new canvases! This talented northern California artist recently graced us with his presence and these long-awaited presents. Mid-sized to large-scale, John’s latest artworks put the “POW” in “peacefully POWerful!”
From a young age, John’s artistic talent was encouraged and nurtured through classes and independent study. In graduate school at UC Davis, he learned firsthand the amount of dedication and vision it would take to pursue a life of art from instructors Roy DeForest, William T. Wiley and Wayne Thiebaud. Their stellar influence, coupled with the art movement of the San Francisco Bay area in the late 1960s and early 1970s set John on his path to becoming a full-time artist.
Vibrant in color and composition, John’s work is reminiscent of the landscape as seen from above. Vineyards, waterways and avian life also feature in his richly-hued paintings. A sense of space and harmony is translated through his masterful brushstrokes. Time spent in New Mexico inspired new visions and palettes, reflective of the region’s dramatic light and form. Back in California, John paints and meditates (for hours) daily, infusing his canvases with his free-flowing manner and practice of mindfulness.
We have represented John for more than 20 years and feel fortunate to share his work with you. View all of John’s evocative artwork online by clicking this link, or see them in person at Chemers Gallery!
