Selected Excerpts

Surreal Virginia

“Wayne Paige’s pegs…. along comes  something fresh and striking…
his oil painting is a unique vision.” …….London Art News

 

“Within his own oeuvre, Wayne  explores art that is both silly
and somber, explosive and contained….
gone through the transformation from super-realism to surrealism to outright fantasy,
with a little twist of social commentary.”……..elan

 

“Social surrealism- social comment inspired by some fearsome aspect of contemporary
life… He can be most provocative and rewarding.”………Washington Post

 

“Wayne Paige’s amazing pen and ink drawings…present an idiosyncratic vision so
compellingly rendered that a skeptical viewer can become engrossed in no time at all.
Paige’s choice of a black and white palette is brilliant.  This is a world of sharp edges,
abrupt contrasts and no choices…He is a master at creating suspense.” ……….Rappahannock News

 

“His drawings are technically brilliant… they look more like etchings than pen
drawings…where the concentration of lowing lines holds the viewer more completely
in its thrall”…………….Montgomery Gazette
