Original mixed media painting in acrylic, spray paint, marker pens and oil pastel on canvas.
"Part of a long-running series by the artist 'resourcing' inspirations from Claude Monet's waterlily paintings at Giverny. From a standard distance, the piece has all the allure of a figurative painting, yet the surface close-up teems with scribblings of paint, scratchings, and dripping."

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.
