Wade is a mid-career artist from Perth. Working primarily with paint, his practice explores issues surrounding Australian identity and landscape, conveying notions of suburbia, nostalgia and the everyday. Focussing on the materiality of paint and the emotive properties of colour and light, works centre on the familiar yet strange qualities of the contemporary Australian landscape. Wade’s work is held in private and public collections including the Art Gallery of Western Australia, City of Perth and the University of Western Australia.
