This artwork will be auctioned at the dinner.
Maloney’s work has been rapturously received. Sasha Grishin in The Canberra Times hailed it as a “complex and multi –layered exhibition “: “I have the feeling that many of these works were never intended for public display, possessing the candour, intimacy and innocence of thoughts confided to paper like a private diary.”
Those rare qualities might evoke a state of daydream, gentle whimsy and unpremeditated associations of disconnected thought, but Maloney’s works are all nonetheless fully resolved pictorial compositions.
His belated exposure in Missing in Action has revealed to the world a truly remarkable artist on paper, an outstanding graphic composer.
As a way of thanking the Drill Hall Gallery, the artist has donated one of his most radiant and vivacious works to be auctioned on the night of the Art Lovers’ Dinner on Friday 1 June 2018.
The market value of this drawing is in the vicinity of $3000. Bidding will take place during the dinner, but if you are not attending and would like to register a silent bid, let us know by email MALONEY BID email@example.com prior to 5 pm Friday I June.
