Wayne Edge works | bio

Wayne Edge has long made sculptural works out of natural objects that reference organic elements of Earth or our atmosphere. He binds thin wooden sticks together with pieces of found items (rocks, glass, stones, shells and the like) into dynamic sculptural works. Stick by stick the sculptures curve upward and outward, allowing the eye to move rhythmically from one end of the piece to the other, all the while giving the viewer a sense of tranquility and space.

Aside from the organic quality of his work, Edge is also renown for breathing new life into material that is often considered scrap. Currently, the artist is utilizing locally grown and sustainable tulip poplar and walnut. At the same time, he is exploring the use of applied color – both with painted wood and found objects.
