Wayne Vivier
Wayne Vivier's work consists out of paintings inspired by exotic images from film and local images from his more immediate environment. The exotic and local images that he perceives are all mediated to some extent, and thus he believes that he often unknowingly labours in an ocean of untruth and uncertainty by the accumulated effects over time of this process. The act of painting is an ironic attempt at the redemption of the false content, or the 'broken images' that have formed.
The process of creating a film image or a photograph is very mechanical while the process of painting is very human and Vivier hopes that by translating the mechanical image into a human hand-made painting that some redemption may take place, and that some grain of truth will become embodied in the work as he invests his human-ness into it, and as he consciously or unconsciously finds pattern in the seemingly senseless experience of modern life.He hopes that the painting will take on something more than just the spreaded paint and that there will be a transformation into something that can be perceived as valuable

Wayne Vivier - Film image #21

"Film image #21"
I chose a square format here to evoke a sense of womb-like comfort. And in this space we encounter a woman holding something, a mysterious object, 'the unfathomable'. It indicates her role to undermine what appears as 'reality'. While her presence can be traumatic, without her, there is no hope of seeing beyond falsity that has become 'naturalized' and seen as the truth.

Wayne Vivier - Film image #28

"Film image #28"
This painting can be seen as a postmodern image of Adam and Eve outside the Garden of Eden. The brushwork is loose indicating uncertainty in the construction of the their figures and their environment. The surface has an electronic or printed quality acknowledging the effect of the modern era on their identities and indicating their simulacral and unreal state. Adam seems to be apologetically and painfully revealing himself to Eve. In the physics of this painting it is possible to see through the outer skin and into the characters. One can see their ineffable stains and monsters within. However, a graceful and redeeming light covers them.
