Allen Maddox

Allen Maddox is remembered as being one of New Zealand’s finest exponents of abstract expressionism.  His work, spanning over three decades, investigates the tensions between structure and gesture, primarily utilising the motifs of grids and crosses.

Maddox was an English-born New Zealand painter, known for his bold abstract works and specifically his use of the cross motif. Born in Liverpool, Maddox migrated to New Zealand in 1963 with his family.
