Wayne Summers Art

b. 1960
Born in Leicestershire in 1960, Wayne Summers attended King Edward VI Grammar School, Stratford-upon-Avon before studying Art & Drama at the West London Institute and Visual Studies at Oxford Polytechnic (now Oxford Brookes). He has since lived on the North Staffordshire moors, in Bristol, Rotterdam and London and is currently based in the Welsh Marches. For the past 30 years he has worked primarily as a graphic designer whilst continuing to paint. In 2011 he mounted his first solo show in over 20 years at Llanover Hall Arts Centre, Cardiff. He was also invited to show work as part of Made in Herefordshire (2011) and the Three Choirs Festival (2012) at the Courtyard, Hereford. The latter was also the venue for An Upstart Crow, a solo show of 23 works on Shakespearean themes which ran from December 2014 to January 2015. He has subsequently shown at MOMA Wales; The Bohunk Institute, Nottingham; The Sidney Nolan Trust, Powys; Hereford Museum; and Ty Pawb, Wrexham. Having concluded an MA in Fine Art (Painting) at Aberystwyth School of Art in 2019, he is now a Doctoral Research student in the same discipline and at the same institution.

He received a BA in aesthetics from the University of Tokyo in 1956 where he also studied music and art history. After graduating, he studied for a year with composer Thrasybulus Georgiades Georgiades at the University of Munich and for two years with composer Woflgang Fortner at the International Music College in Freiburg. He attended the International Summer Courses for New Music in Darmstadt in 1957, when he met Karlheinz Stockhausen, and in 1958, when he met John Cage. Cage, and through him Marcel Duchamp, had a significant influence on Paik as he became a major force in the avant-garde through performances. In Hommage à John Cage (1959), Paik employed audiotape and performance to attack traditional musical instrumentation and compositional practices, splicing together piano playing, screaming, bits of classical music, and sound effects. Realizing that taped sound was not enough, he decided to move into performance, first by introducing performative actions into his audio works. In 1961 Paik performed Simple, Zen for Head and Étude Platonique No. 3, in which he became a volatile figure, thrashing about in unexpected patterns and sudden movements to his signature soundtracks. In 1962 Paik participated in the Fluxus International Festival of the New Music in Weisbaden. Paik's first exhibition, entitled Exposition of Music - Electronic Television, in 1963 at Galerie Parnass at Wuppertal, launched his transition from composer and performance artist to the inventor of a new art form: an engagement with the material site of television as an instrument. In the exhibition, thirteen televisions lay on their backs and sides with their reception altered; for example, Zen for TV (1963) reduced the television picture to a horizontal line and Kuba TV (1963) shrank and expanded the image on the television set according to the changing volume. In 1964 Paik traveled to the US. He quickly settled in New York and became a leading innovator among an emerging generation of artists seeking new modes of artistic expression and distribution. That same year, Paik collaborated with Shuya Abe to create Robot K-456 (1964), a remote controlled robot that played audiotaped speeches by John F. Kennedy and defecated beans in Paik's Robot Opera (1964). In the interactive work Magnet TV (1965), Paik invited viewers to modify the television's output into swerving abstract lines through the movement of a magnet over the TV. In 1967 Paik and frequent collaborator Charlotte Moorman were arrested when Moorman performed Paik's Opera Sextronique (1967), a striptease as she played the cello at the Filmmakers' Cinematheque in New York. Paik's TV Bra for Living Sculpture (1969), which Moorman wore in performances, featured two television tubes...
