"Wardle's work renders the urban landscape as if caught in the midst of a
nuclear blast; colours intensified to a terrifying degree.
He has ratcheted up Howard Arkley's day-glo colours and spray can
appearance with carefully applied brush strokes. His suburbia burns with
radioactive intensity. In other works, the colours are muted, greys and
ultra-marines dumbed down to a tonality of nuclear winter.
The sci-fi dystopia of Wardle's works is key to their appeal."
