Wayne’s interest in art was stimulated while attending High School. Now, a full-time Artist, Wayne’s passion for the conservation and nurturing of our environment which has been translated into canvas. In the footsteps of Jonathan White one of the new drivers has become the increased awareness of the need to protect and share the beauty of the landscape. It is into this new mix that Wayne Vickers has emerged. Moving around the landscape – looking, observing and being captured by a momentary flash of inspiration is the stimulation which translates into a pure landscape, primordial with majestic mountains and powerful seascapes. This work plays with the moods of the New Zealand back country – the four seasons in one day, and the enveloping of lush untouched nature. The play of light, like so many other artists, captures the soul of Wayne’s work. Through multi-layers of glaze and oil paint both the real and imagined become intertwined as one.
