Wayne Singleton's Gallery

Wayne Singleton

Wayne Singleton was born in Melbourne Victoria and moved to live in Brisbane Queensland, Australia in 1986. He trained as a Stereo Cutter (Relief Block Maker) in the printing industry and then gained tertiary qualifications in art, graphic design, art education and religious education in Melbourne.

He is a fulltime Relief Block Printmaker specialising in hand coloured works, a tradition that dates back to the Renaissance in Europe. Wayne enjoys working to help keep the old craft skills alive. He also undertakes art residencies and conducts printmaking workshops in secondary schools, at Impress Printmakers Brisbane, and for Regional Arts Councils in Queensland. 

Wayne’s art practice investigates being and place. Images mostly come from places in South-east Queensland.  He enjoys spending concentrated periods of time just observing landscape, searching for the deep structure within it. He enjoys noting the subtle ways that life grows by accommodating physical structures surrounding it, soil types, neighbouring life forms and the climate.  Wayne says ‘life that best adapts to constant change and can compromise to accommodate the needs of life around it; survives and often takes on interesting unexpected character and form’. 

His drawing is dense with detail and the colour palette used in his prints changes to reflect the type of country or season he is representing. Printmaking gives Wayne a grounding that comes from reflecting on his perspective of the world; it is a way of appropriately being in it. 

Wayne has been a finalist in the national Silkcut Print Awards 3 times and selected as a Stanthorpe Art Festival finalist in 2016. He was the winner of the Clayfield College Art Exhibition ‘people’s choice’ award in 2015, winner of the Royal Queensland Art Society Print Award for Relief Block Printmaking and the ‘people’s choice’ award in 2016 and was also winner of the ‘people’s choice’ award at the ‘50 x 50’ exhibition at the Impress Printmakers Gallery in 2016.

He has works in many Brisbane corporate collections including The Wesley Hospital, The Mater Private Hospital, The Sunshine Coast University Hospital, The Toowong Private Hospital, Ord Minnett, Water Solutions Engineers, PlaceMate Architects, St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School, and Brisbane Boys Grammar School..
