Anne Wallace: Strange Ways

$39.95

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. 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 publication featuring new essays by Gillian Brown, Francis Plagne and Vanessa Van Ooyen.
