Artists Make for Terrible Communists

I was born in 1982 in Pasadena, California. After attending public art high school in Los Angeles, I went to Boston for college, at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.  My paintings are inspired by daydreams, retreat and the formidable nature outside my window. I live and work in the tiny hillside town of Jenner, California, where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean, about an hour and a half north of San Francisco with my artist husband Kai Samuels-Davis.

Paintings by Maxwell Doig

“The art of Maxwell Doig is immediately recognisable as his, not only because of his very individual deployment of various painterly techniques, but also, primarily indeed, because of his distinctive vision. Such skill in purely representational painting is rare indeed these days, but one does not win the Villiers David Prize, as Doig did in 1997, for skill alone. What makes Doig stand out, then and now, is his visions of life itself. As he puts it, “In an age when everything is moving so fast, I’m interested in portraying stillness and quiet” And who, in the light of Vermeer and Hammersmith, can argue with that?”
