Wayne Youle: Colonel Mustard in the study with the candlestick - Art Collector

Wayne Youle, ‘SOLDIER’, 2018. Recycled rimu, jarrah, oak, dyed pine balls, rimu curtain rings, 31.5 x 24 x 3cm. Courtesy: the artist and Suite Gallery, Wellington.

  The indigenous mask was a source of inspiration for many iconic 20th century artists. Youle has long been interested in these objects and collections of them held in European museums. Using carving techniques he learnt while at art school Youle has created a series of pared back masks. Materials used range from children’s blocks, furniture, fruit bowls, curtain rings, oak bedheads, to wood that has come from demolished buildings in post-earthquake Christchurch.
