Wayne Attwood

Wayne's aim is to capture the atmosphere and culture of the everyday environments we inhabit, as he perceives or experiences them, and is continually drawn to urban, social, industrial and cultural subjects as a motif. There resides a fascination with how we are connected through a mutual experience of shared urban spaces. 
Although draughtsmanship is fundamental to the work, he doesn't necessarily wish to produce an accurate topographical documentation, but rather capture an emotive, perceptual 'sense of place'. Realism is not the intent. Working from direct observation, he creates a series of drawings and studies which are then used to design and produce studio paintings; not tending to use a single source of reference but refer to various sources for each painting, hopefully adding a feel of movement or transition in an intuitive contemporary manner.
