Anne Wallace Exhibition – LAST DAY
February 23 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm AEST
Wallace’s paintings are at times difficult to look at. She combines the familiar with the unfamiliar, capturing a tension between the real and the imagined to create slightly awkward moments.
They exude a strangeness derived from her unusual use of perspectives, the superimposing of images, and the borrowing of disparate sources. Like any good ‘story’, there is sexual and social confusion, vulnerability and violence, alienation and loneliness, feelings of the abject, or fantasies of power and revenge. Wallace’s paintings have an uncanny ability to tap into a shared psyche, drawing upon the language of pop culture. Bringing together more than 80 works from public and private collections, and spanning three decades, this is the most comprehensive survey of Wallace’s practice to date.
The exhibition will include a screening program of films selected by the artist, and is accompanied by a major publication, featuring new essays by Gillian Brown, Francis Plagne and Vanessa Van Ooyen. For more information including future travel dates, visit the event link.
