Allen Maddox

1948 – 2000

Maddox was born in Liverpool, England and moved to New Zealand as a teenager.

Known for the cross and grid symbols in his work, Maddox is an abstract realist, never painting figurative subjects. Along with Fomison and Clairmont the three artists were known as ‘The Militant Artists’. The artists represented a dark, precarious, ever challenging underbelly of the New Zealand art world.
