The majority of Wayne Chisnall's sculptural work involves the reworking and assemblage of found objects and materials. He uses materials that he feels have a certain ‘resonance’. Much of Wayne's work centers on the theme of memory or its fallibility. This is more strongly evident in his pieces that incorporate or recreate childhood artifacts and toys. Another re-occurring theme or motif in Wayne Chisnall's scultures is that of the wheeled box or tower, which represents containment, the urge to possess and restricted mobility.
