A self-taught sculptor, Nakusp-based Wayne Fagan was inspired at an early age by his love of food and cooking, and began a 45-year career as a chef. His interest in sculpting began by using tallow to create sculptures for buffet tables. He learned the art of stone carving through workshops in New Zealand and Vietnam, his goal being to stimulate contemplation by creating a story and bringing movement and flow to a static medium.
Nurturing pays homage to a mother’s love. The gentle emotion and movement captured in the piece shows how true inspiration is found within everyday experiences.
