John Maillard is a Canterbury New Zealand artist using photography and related print making and drawing. Johns work is about the landscapes of the south Island and the rural community he lives in. The themes of the work are many and varied, the story of the landscape and land use, the grandeur of south Island views. John tries to capture the unseen elements in his work. Subjects like wind, elements and time passed, all play a role in his visualisation of the landscape. Johns main influence was his German grandfather, who was a painter in Northern Germany. The great mid century American landscape and late century British photographers have also been an influence.
