“PASSING FREIGHT TRAIN”, mixed mediums on wood, 13” H x 18” W, 2021
My name is Wayne Hoey and I’ve been a painter for 40 years. Wain Hoé is my pseudonym when I create sculpture. They differ greatly from my primary focus in painting. There is a connection somewhere between the two, I’m just not quite sure at this point. The Lookations Series are a group of relief sculptures.
The series began innocently as nature props for my painting but soon they became more as my imagination took them over and they became sculptural art on their own. Artist’s can’t help but make things, and it is inevitable that their creativity spills over into all that they do.
This is the first time I’ve exhibited them.
