Original painting in acrylic on canvas.

Original painting in acrylic, oil, oil-based markers and spraypaint on canvas.

The appeal of the subject was for me not the figurative beauty of a peacock but its potential for abstraction. Symbolically charged, l wanted - through the act of deliberately letting the paint run its course - to disfigure the figure to create a visual tension to the image; where does beauty end and ugliness begin ? Is not everything a question of vanity?

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.
