“Budge has a way of drawing drama from his subjects. He captures how nature paints with light and he concentrates our focus letting us take a glimpse into Wayne’s world. His images can be delicate but usually possess a lyrical strength that mark them out from the ordinary.”    Andrew “Greedy” Smith… Artist, Singer/Songwriter –  “Mental As Anything”

 

“I have known Wayne Budge for quite some years and during this time I have had the pleasure to view his ‘art of photography’. Wayne’s command of using a camera is way beyond the ‘norm’, he is able to transform his photographs into an art piece of outstanding quality. His works transcend into a parallel dimension exposing the hidden virtues of his subject. I have seen his works grow in depth and emotion and yet he tells me his journey has just begun.”     Donald James Waters… Artist – OAM

 

It’s been an absolute pleasure hosting your ‘Faces Behind The Music’ exhibition, bringing with it the joy of memories created to the great Australian soundtrack. It has been enjoyed by our volunteers and visitors, many of whom had stories to share around these artists, their music and performances, and easily related back to the personalities you have so gracefully captured in these images. We created a Spotify playlist which included all bands and artists featured and kept us happily tapping and humming along each day, adding an extra dimension to the experience. Thank you Wayne, for bringing these faces and their music to life in our Gallery!   Cara Boehm –  Gallery Project Officer, Barossa Regional Gallery, South Australia
