"Inspiration is first and foremost from nature - Wayne Stutchbury"
Sculpture - Objects
In his work, Wayne Stutchbury tries to "give objects a second life" using wood offcuts, scrap metal, cut alien jacaranda wood, and pieces of wooden dhows found along the beaches.
Inspiration is first and foremost from nature - the shapes and form and colours of the Zimbabwean wilderness and the coastline of Mozambique give him the core idea upon which he builds the sculptures. A unique childhood immersed in the African environment has produced a strong theme representing the form and colour, and it prevails in all of Wayne's work, whether painting or sculpture.
Over many years, Wayne has exhibited regularly in Zimbabwe, as well as shows in Kenya, South Africa, Ireland and Jersey. Works reside in a variety of prominent public spaces in Harare, from Amanzi Restaurant to the National Gallery of Zimbabwe.
Wayne lives on a small holding just outside of Harare, Zimbabwe, along with his two best friends, staffies, Fundi and Jasmine!
