”The Tree House Series”

Wayne Milner

Please join us to celebrate the opening of The Tree House Series by Wayne Milner, Sunday 3 February 2013, 3 – 6pm.

Wayne’s new body of work has a sensitive and lyrical feel in the way he sees the celebration of life. Nationalism is treated with reverie and jest and depicted in a very colourful manner.

According to Wayne, "Through the years of experiencing life’s emotions and realisations on who I am, it became clear to me that to make comment on canvas is the best way of communicating to others. The academic history of visual arts is filled with inventive creations ideas and movements ( isms ), which has lead the way. I strive for qualities and for a playfulness of hand, and as a great lover of colour I use it to draw emotion to convey a mood to the work."

My current work “The Tree House Series” has a sensitive and lyrical feel. It celebrates life, it celebrates being Australian with reverie and gest. The style is symbolic using surrealism as a framework and history as a navigator. Within this framework I use elements such as the “tree” as a metaphor for “celebration of life”, or our connection to the earth, the cracking brickwork is time lapsed and the balloon is me the “viewing gypsy”, The works are carnivalesque and exciting to view, with past present and global issues.
