Artists in the shadow of the great

The Daily Telegraph, 22 Feb 1988

By contrast, Adrian Mauriks painted wood and steel sculptures at the Irving Sculpture Gallery stand outside the mainstream of modern art and have a strong element of fantasy.

Mauriks, a Dutch-born painter, sculptor and printmaker who is holding his first Sydney show, trips into something quite primal in his sculptures, and implicit in all his work is the message that western civilisation is teetering on the verge of ruin.
