Adrian Mauriks, Images in the Mirror, documents some of the sculptural highlights in Mauriks’ 40 year plus artistic career. This interactive iBook developed specifically for the iPad contains detailed information and over 40 photographs of Mauriks’ critically acclaimed sculptural works and eight essays by eminent art critics and curators.
Over the years Adrian Mauriks’ sculpture has undergone a dramatic transformation - as dramatic as from black to white. His early works were frequently dark in mood, often execute in welded steel, painted black, whereas his current installations have a clarity of spirit which is expressed in pure white forms of elegant expressiveness. It has been a fascinating journey.
Extract from A Sculptural Journey by well known art critic and curator, Ken Scarlett, OAM.
I walk past one of the sculptures by Adrian Mauriks at Chadston shopping centre on my way to work almost every day, but had no idea how many fantastic artworks he has scattered throughout Melbourne. I'll be keeping my eyes open for the rest. Amazing artwork, great photos, a great addition to my new iPad!
