Rupert Maas to Open 2018 Exhibition

Rupert Maas was born in 1960, the same year The Maas Gallery was founded. He was educated at Sherborne School in Dorset 1973 –78, and took a B.A. in Art History at Essex University 1980 – 83. He sailed the Atlantic in the summer of 1983 and was tricked by his father into joining him at The Maas Gallery later that year. Following the death of his father in 1996 he now owns and runs the Gallery, which deals in Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite, Romantic and Modern British paintings, watercolours, drawings, reproductive engravings and sculpture, and the work of two or three living artists. Rupert has maintained the tradition set by his father and has arranged a number of important exhibitions at his Gallery, including Pre-Raphaelites and Romantics, Masters of British Illustration, John Ruskin and his Circle, Burne-Jones, Victorian Fairy Paintings, biennial exhibitions of Victorian Engravings and annual exhibitions of Victorian Paintings.

Artist's Statement:

Alive with a dynamic expressive energy the landscapes of Jeannette Hayes resonate with a liberated optimistic creativity.
In works that are constructed out of lines and blocks of evocative colour, abstract activity is finely balanced with landscape reference. A love of the exquisiteness and drama of the natural world conveys itself in the drawn marks, gestures and accents of colour. Colour plays a central role - titles often contain a colour: ‘Spring Green’, ‘Orange Mousa’, or ‘Blue Snowing’ - setting an ambient mood to the recording of her experience of a place. This gives the works a poetic quality that is in keeping with the way they were conceived.
