Wayne Magrin

Artist's CV

Represented by nanda\hobbs

…looking out to the port of Palm Beach Australia from the dock through weather and wind, Wayne has tried to paint every version and shape of spray and white water,  in the frothy thick of it and in the distance too, painted on the wood of the sign painter— a durable and sturdy surface that receives the physical nature of Wayne’s free and succinct hand. The translation of what is seen and what it becomes is pure painting, direct, the original sin.”

“Wayne was painting in a small widow's walk on the top of his house, and when I visited him the friend who had brought me there volunteered that Wayne had a story to go with each painting. I said “Let me look at the painting. I don't need to hear the story first.” I did. And loved the small paintings that he had made in his tower. And after looking, I read the stories. And the stories were good. Wayne is a narrative painter – inhabiting and traveling along in his imagination. The narration is a source of life, life at sea, imagery, content and the joy and discovery of the painted world.”
