" These are neither (land)scapes nor (sea)scapes, but ‘scapes’; anagrams of certain ‘spaces’."


In his mature work since moving to the Lorraine region of France in 2001, Wayne Sleeth reiterates and re-explores the source and schema of his more formative sensations; the big skies above the flat lands of both the Lincolnshire coast of his father and the polders of maternal Flanders, where he also spent his childhood. The Lorraine region for this confirmed European is not only geographically strategic, but offers an echo of that very play of horizontality and verticality beyond the elements, where the artist finds full artistic liberty in “l’espace” as he knows and feels it, as far as the canvas edge…

They are neither about land nor sea nor skies, but those spaces colour, line and texture inhabit, make their own, or escape. "
