SOLAR FLARES


In Solar Flares, Wayne introduces the compositional device of placing one field within another. This would characterize much of her work in lithography over the next five years. The scale of both fields is deliberately ambiguous - probably vast and immeasurable, yet possibly microscopic - and the boundaries between what we assume are separate planes are deliberately breached.


Waye concentrated on capturing the fugitive color of yellow ink and found that she could hold it only by introducing other colors round it. As a result of her experiments, she almost completely avoided yellow in her next porfolio of cosmic images.
