Original painting in acrylic and oil on canvas.
"The first of an ongoing series of works dealing with an environment close to my heart; the coast. The composition is as always reduced to two planes, here the sky is incised by the flight of gulls, describing an ambiguous space. The notion of using a figurative element to describe or fix an abstract, anonymous space has now become a factor in my rendering of land- and sea-scapes."

Currently based in France, Wayne Sleeth is a painter of personal discovery, composing a work to his own evolving rhythm. Perceiving the act of painting a complex composition of hidden memory. Sleeth chooses to form open-ended ‘scapes’, whereby memories are shaped as inviting sensations. Landscapes and skylines become abstract forms, while emotive representations gain tangible presence.
