Wayne Paige's Pegs

Wayne Paige - Returning (2003)As regular readers will know, Coxsoft Art tends to give the raspberry to a lot of so-called "contemporary art". Then along comes something fresh and striking and you think "How do I define this without accusing it of being contemporary art?" Forget definitions. This oil painting is an example of the unique vision of US artist Wayne Paige, who's into clothes pegs in a big way. Large characters are clothes pegs and the detail of his paintings is made up of clothes pegs. And it works! Wayne is featured in the January edition (12) of Art4Heart News. Click the title link to see more of his paintings.
