Building Up Layers

Amy Mercer interviews painter Leslie Wayne about her work.  Wayne's abstract paintings,which are strongly influenced by landscape painting, layer "vibrant and dissonant colors built through the structural qualities of paint..." cutting, flipping and sculpting... "the material to evoke the power of the natural world."  Recent Work by Leslie Wayne is on view at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston, SC through March 12, 2011.
