Newzones is pleased to host a solo exhibition by Don Maynard.
Don Maynard's painting is a rich exploration of markings and gestures. He paints with encaustic; a centuries-old technique of working with molten waxes. His paintings become carefully built up surfaces - layer upon layer of texture - revealing subtle traces of symbols and graphic iconography.Various traditional and industrial materials create his highly textured surfaces. Wax meets metal as the artist pushes the limits of his materials, as well as conceived notions of surface.
Don Maynard has exhibited across Canada, and his work is in the collection of The Department of Foreign Affairs, University of Toronto and the Canada Council Art Bank. He is the subject of a half hour segment of "Adrienne Clarkson Presents" produced by the CBC in 1998.
