Lives and works between Melbourne and Mullumbimby Australia
Heath Wae is a multidisciplinary artist currently living and working in Northern New South Wales. Following his graduation from Sydney College of the Arts, Wae traveled intrepidly throughout Asia, settling in India for two years before moving to New York and Colombia for the years to follow.
Amidst these contrasting experiences, Wae found inspiration in chaos, calmness, humanity and nature while continuing to explore his gentle practice.
Inspired by the minimalist art of Rajasthani tantric devotees and numerous cultures of earth painting worldwide Wae draws from this connection to earth and spirit. This culture of painting is deep in philosophical subtext concerning the art of harmonious involvement with nature.
Combining earth pigments, raw ochres, found charcoals and natural oils Wae is opening up a more ethical and integral approach to contemporary minimalism.
These concepts endlessly inform Wae’s work, alongside the exploration of texture, tone, perception and depth; the rise of colour in the human eye and brain, the appreciation and discrimination of harmony and the intrigue or confusion of visual perception.
