Maynard Waters is an exceptional painter capturing the essence of an Australia that he chooses to view with an intentional selective blindness. In doing so he presents a nostalgic and romantic viewpoint of the country and city through the workingman's eyes.
Maynard achieves with ease what all artists strive for - originality. His genuine, if at times incomplete, views of the city and country are devoid of mass modernity - there are no office blocks or hi-rise apartment buildings - but there are contemporary items such as roadwork signs in brilliant basic colours, modern cars, communication towers and so on.
His paintings are of Australia, painted by a distinctively Australian artist, one who has travelled his country from Sydney to Fremantle, from the Gold Coast to Malua Bay, through the back yards and narrow city alleys, along the wide, unpaved streets and laneways of countryside villages and properties.
This book traces Maynard Waters artistic and family life - drawing on a range of historic and newly written material accompanied by over 150 images and photographs. The publication is a testament to a working life dedicated to an ideal of presenting what he saw and where he saw it.
This beautifully bound and presented limited edition publication is available direct from the artist at $200 plus shipping. Please contact Maynard Waters to order your copy of "a working painter".
