Shore Installations 2010
In the past year, Wardlaw has again broken through to new aesthetic ground. There is an exuberance and freedom to his latest group of work, collectively titled Shore Installations. In this new series of paintings, the artist appears to be mining his own past, paying homage to individuals and influences important to his artistic development. They are in a sense a summing up of all that he knows and believes after a lifetime of making art.
