June Wayne is celebrated as the founder of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop which she directed in Los Angeles from 1960. Her own prodigious work, which embraces graphics as well as drawings, paintings and designs for tapestries, draws upon multiple interests in music, literature and science, often collectively referred to 'Quantum Aesthetics'.

She writes on the subject of Tidal Waves,

' Waves interested me from infancy in as much as I lived in Chicago and often visited the shoreline of Lake Michigan which is noted for its ocean-like waves... Much later in life, the wave, like other out-sized natural phenomena (earthquakes, hurricanes, comets etc) fascinated me exactly because of their independence from human control and their devastating potential for nullifying even the grandest of schemes...' (In correspondence to BM&AG, 3 June 1997).

Presented by Professor Pat Gilmour, 1997.
