Leslie Wayne

Leslie Wayne is a visual artist who lives and works in New York. Wayne is best known for her "highly dimensional paintings". Leslie Wayne was born in Landstühl, Germany to American parents and grew up in Los Angeles and Newport Beach. At the age of 7, she was taking private art lessons and attended classes on the weekends throughout high school, her first two years of undergraduate work at the University of California, Santa Barbara's College of Creative Studies focused on the figure, plein-air landscapes, printmaking. She created a suite of etchings and aquatints based on the photographs of Jacques Henri Lartigue, with whom she had begun a correspondence. Wayne moved to Paris and lived there from 1974-1975, where she attended French classes at the Alliance Française, continued to paint on her own and in various small ateliers. At the Alliance Française, Wayne met an Israeli man. After having returned to California, she moved to Israel in 1975 to live with him and stayed there until 1980. In Israel, she continued to paint and explore other creative outlets, including ceramics and children's book illustration.

Wayne returned to Southern California in 1980 and two years moved to New York City, where she enrolled in Parsons School of Design. At Parsons, Wayne became a sculpture major and studied with Ronald Bladen and Don Porcaro, whom she married in 1987, she graduated with honors, with a BFA in sculpture in 1984. Wayne's early work was driven by a focus on observation, her inspiration came from French Impressionism the paintings of Van Gogh and Manet, the photographs of Jacques Henri Lartigue. Only after her classes at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière, did she first venture into abstraction. Wayne had her first solo show at the Jerusalem Theatre Gallery in 1979 of works that were inspired by Georgia O’Keefe's desert landscape paintings. Returning to California, she continued to paint plein-air landscapes. With the hills of Laguna Beach as her source, Wayne developed a deep love for and identification with the landscape and geology of the Western United States. Wayne transferred to Parsons School of Design.

While a student there, she focused on sculpture, was inspired by the work of David Smith. After graduation, Wayne returned to painting, developing a minimalist abstract style inspired by the many trips she and her husband, sculptor Don Porcaro made to the Southwest, she exhibited these works in her first New York solo show at 55 Mercer Street Gallery. Although this show resulted in the attention of the New York art scene, Wayne longed for the creative excitement she felt when she was making sculpture. Experimenting in her studio, Wayne began challenging the physical limitations of paint, resulting in a style that became the central focus of her career. In 1992 she received a fellowship to the renown artist's colony, Yaddo where she worked on refining her new approach, showed these paintings at 55 Mercer Gallery that year. Based on the success of that show, she was invited to join Jack Shainman Gallery, with whom she continues to be represented. Wayne's works, hybrids of sculpture and painting, range from small scale to larger multi-paneled and shaped paintings.

Wayne's themes explore the intersection of abstraction and figuration and forms in nature, as well as perception and the relationship between object and image by engaging and challenging the conventional notions of the painting medium. Wayne had her first two New York solo shows at 55 Mercer Street Gallery in 1990 and 1992. In 1993 she had her first solo show that year. Throughout the late 1990s and into the 2000s Wayne exhibited with L. A. Louver in Los Angeles, Solomon Projects in Atlanta, GA, Byron Cohen Gallery for Contemporary Art in Kansas City, MO and Galerie Bugdahn und Kaimer in Düsseldorf, Germany, her work was featured in the 44th Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary American Painting: Painting Outside Painting, curated by Terrie Sultan for the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D. C. in 1995. In 2002, an installation of sixty of Wayne's paintings inaugurated the new Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art in New Paltz, NY as part of an installation with 60 of Porcaro's small scale sculptures.

The show was expanded in 2004, becoming Porcaro's work from the previous decade. Titled "The Object of Time: Charting A Decade", the exhibition traveled to the University Gallery at the University of Florida in Gainesville, the Crossley Gallery at the Ringling School of Art and Design, the Red Gallery at the Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2011, the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston mounted a five-year survey of Wayne's recent work. A catalogue and video interview accompanied the exhibition; the show traveled to the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, the Joseloff Gallery at the University of Hartford and the Foosaner Art Museum. In 2014, the Abroms Engel Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Alabama presented a survey of Wayne's paintings entitled "Mind The Gap", which inaugurated the newly opened museum. Wayne's work is in many public collections throughout the United States and abroad, including the Birmingham Museum of Art, Birmingham, AL. C..

New Play Control!

New Play Control! is a series of GameCube titles ported over to the Wii by Nintendo. Games in the New Play Control! Series feature a number of enhancements, most notably the implementation of Wii controls with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, as well as the inclusion of widescreen support and enhanced graphics. Nintendo announced the Wii de Asobu Selection range of titles for Japan in a presentation on October 2, 2008, confirming Pikmin and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat would launch in the year, whilst a spokesperson for Nintendo of Europe confirmed days that the series would launch in Europe. In Japan and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat launched in December 2008 and were followed throughout 2009 by Mario Tennis GC, Pikmin 2, Chibi-Robo! and Metroid Prime 2: Dark Echoes. In the same year, New Play Control! launched in Europe, North America and Australia, though not all games were made available worldwide: Pikmin 2 did not launch in North America until June 2012, when it was released as a Nintendo Selects title instead of a New Play Control!

Title. Pikmin and Pikmin 2 allow players to point and click with the Wii Remote to whistle and throw Pikmin. Mario Power Tennis draws on the swinging motions seen in Wii Sports to perform various swings, while it is possible to move the character with the control stick if the Nunchuk is attached. Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes use the same control functions as first seen in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. An early prototype of the control scheme had been used with a technical demo version of Metroid Prime 2, first seen when the Wii Remote was announced. Other changes have been made to the games other than improved graphics. Donkey Kong Jungle Beat features new levels and modified level design for existing levels to give the game a more traditional platforming feel. Pikmin allows players to roll back their game saves to previous days, erasing only a recent part of the save file, though this did not carry over to Pikmin 2. Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes feature some of the features introduced in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, including the achievements system, unlockable content and the ability to take screenshots.

Four of the games—Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, Mario Power Tennis and Pikmin 2—have been universally released as New Play Control! titles, though Pikmin 2 did not carry the moniker for its North American release as it was released three years after the rest of the series. The two Metroid Prime games were bundled with Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and released in the limited edition Metroid Prime: Trilogy compilation, which launched in 2009 and was given only one limited edition print run, being discontinued soon after release. Pikmin 2 was not released in North America until June 2012, when it and Mario Power Tennis were released as budget titles in the Nintendo Selects range; each game in the New Play Control! Series features a standard cover art, explaining the premise of the series, as well as each game's original Nintendo GameCube cover art; each game's cover art is reversible. Following the introduction of Wii games on Nintendo eShop on Wii U in January 2015, several of the games have been released on the platform without the New Play Control! branding.

Metroid Prime: Trilogy was the first to launch in Europe and North America, where it became available in January 2015. Touch!
