Breakfast Opening

Wayne Youle’s recent series of text based paintings serve as an artistic diary. Reflections and meditations on daily life sit alongside art historical and literary references, snippets of words and phrases that frequently jostle for space in Wayne’s busy mind.

Immaculately rendered in subtly different layers of white paint, the vinyl stencilled lettering in Times New Roman font gives a power and strength to the typography of simple phrases. A period of great productivity in 2020 also led to a chance discovery of a book about Mondrian, found buried at the back of Wayne’s bookcase, which has since led to a self- described Mondrian obsession. Some paintings inspired by this obsession are included in the exhibition.

{Suite} Ponsonby will host a breakfast opening with coffee and pastries between 8am - 930am on Thursday 22 July. Please call by to view the exhibition and chat with Wayne.
