While Anne Wallace’s figurative paintings might seem conventional on the surface, they are anything but ordinary. Her meticulously painted canvases lead us to expect a narrative but, on a deeper level, deny us that satisfaction. Their strangeness comes from her unusual use of perspectives, the superimposing of images, and references to disparate sources. Wallace combines the familiar with the unfamiliar, capturing a tension between the real and the imagined to depict slightly awkward moments. Like any good ‘story’, they seem to refer to sexual and social confusion, vulnerability and violence, alienation and loneliness or fantasies of power and revenge. Her paintings have an uncanny ability to tap into a shared psyche, drawing on the language of pop culture. This comprehensive survey of Wallace’s practice brings together nearly 50 works from public and private collections and spanning three decades. The exhibition is accompanied by a major publication, featuring new essays by Gillian Brown, Francis Plagne and Vanessa Van Ooyen. Curator: Vanessa Van Ooyen Anne Wallace: Strange Ways is a QUT Art Museum touring exhibition...
