after Matisse

September 21, 2020

“We have suffered too long from the dull and the stupidly serious,” says Brooklyn-based artist, Wayne Pate. His paintings and collages are so full of whimsy. Iznik Blooms are my favourites. Have a look at his gorgeous textiles. I can’t imagine a room where his lemons and florals wouldn’t fit in. Wayne paints lampshades and ceramics with pomegranates and Chrysanthemums. What joy. “I’d be lying if I said Matisse wasn’t an influence. For him, every waking moment was about beauty. Matisse’s work was a true embodiment of the life he lived.”
