"The form of Parliament painted in gold and silver - a rejection of a 'golden rule' at art school - as an allusion to a market econcomy, to the financial City itself, to power and greed. Texturally full too of crowns, a nod and a wink to monarchy and another artist cherished by Sleeth; Jean-Michel Basquiat."

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.
