Wayne Brookes - Opulence and Ostentation: A Covid Operation

Watch the latest video as part Despard Gallery’s artist interviews , produced by Art Rewind.


Despard Gallery is thrilled to present the latest video in our Artist Interview Series featuring Tasmanian painter, Wayne Brookes.

A visual narrator, Brookes’ uses paint to recount stories of ornate objects and the spaces they populate.  An obsession with visual splendour underpins his arts practice, where personal experiences and historical narratives are often weaved together into a single composition.
