Wayne Smith’s practice is varied and not easily pigeon holed preferring rather to range across a number of stylistic options. The fusion of three dimensional and two dimensional elements in his work leads to some interesting and original outcomes. These works are often driven by the nature of the space and surrounding environment the work is commissioned for. The use of sculptural relief, imbedded lights, colour and texture in his illuminated work result in jewel like adornments.
He works in series with different ideas or themes running in parallel as a means of progressing through these ideas. His inspiration comes from a variety of sources. It can be from an idea or issue, experience in nature, or from the texture of surfaces or the play of light.
