Wayne’s sculptures are constructed rather than welded, often out of found and recycled materials. Kick drums and tom-toms turn into coffee tables, a tuba becomes a standard lamp. Much of his work reflects his life as a musician or his love of the sea.
In 2020 Wayne launched Gippsland Art Couriers to ensure that artists' work arrives safely at destinations as diverse as the Archibald exhibition or your living room.
About my work
My work is constructed rather than welded. While I'm drawn to steampunk, my quirk-infused aesthetic is entirely my own. Kick drums and tom-toms turn into coffee tables, a tuba becomes a standard lamp. French oak wine barrels morph into fruit bowls, serving trays and candelabras.
I find making sculptures out of found and recycled materials very satisfying. Repurposing materials that would otherwise be discarded makes me feel better about the environment.
