Maull’s abstract language reveals a practice that tunes the viewer into his passion for nature. Like Monet’s Chrysanthemums, which also fill up the canvas, Maull captures the sense of connection artists have to a vigorous creative process and the vastness of the natural world.

John Maull, who began making art at the Tierra del Sol Foundation Studios in 2005, is known for making vivid landscapes, with a practice that acts as an extension of his relationship with his family and faith. In his youth, Maull would spend hours working with his mother in their hillside garden. Those closest to Maull believe these memories are the primary inspiration for this prolific body of work.

③ Artist:

John Maull

John Maull began making art at the Tierra del Sol Foundation Studios in 2005, where he has spent the last 15 years cultivating an expressive style and multimedia practice. Maull’s abstract language reveals a practice that tunes the viewer into his passion for nature and the joy of making. He captures the timelessness and sense of connection artists have to the creative processes of the natural world creating vivid landscapes in ballpoint pen, colored pencil, and paint. Through layering and redaction, Maull’s impressionistic renderings demonstrate his gentle appreciation for natural beauty as well as his passion for exploration. Raised in a Christian household, the ritual of Maull's practice acts as an extension of the artist’s relationship with his family and faith.
