Shop fitter-turned contemporary figurative art practitioner, Keith Maiden returns to the scene of his recently crafted finest compositional hours this Autumn 2016, news which we – along with the best-selling fine artist’s legions of fans – welcomed with fevered anticipation upon hearing it. Now that Maiden’s very latest giclee on canvas limited edition is amongst us – entitled ‘Private Everything I’ – seeing as believing, as is the norm. Describing his new individually-signed canvas with slip iteration as ‘very raw’, the hugely exciting Maiden also expressed a desire to ‘paint from the heart, and strive for emotion and feeling’ in his work, and readily admits that he strives for realism through his body of work, rather than perfection. And it’s a body (of the female form) which is at the forefront of Maiden’s new study, which adopting a familiar figurative stance appears to protest at the way society is heading and the chaos which it’s rapidly descending into; for those who read both the sensationalist headlines and between the lines. Restricted to just 150 examples, this 20” x 32” study is now available to order.
