150 x 120 cm | 55 x 44 in
Original painting in acrylic paint, spraypaint and acrylic markers on wallpaper marouflé on deep-edged 150 x 120 cm canvas.
"This piece, as most in the artist's long-running series inspired by Monet's work on the same theme, was executed avoiding the use of a paintbrush; in order to maintain a vibrant, contemporary feel to a modern-classical subject, Sleeth allows spraypaint to run, his markers meander to form waterlilies and ocassional words and signs, and small parts of the underlying printed paper to appear, like an urbain undercurrent."

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.
