Bio & CV

Bio & CV:

In many of Wallace’s tiny paintings, corners, along with doors and windows offer architectural potential as places of refuge or comfort. By incorporating cropping, blurring, glazing, repetition, and various levels of zoom in her compositions, Wallace constructs a distortion of details evocative of the murkiness often accompanied with the process of recalling past events. These deeply personal, and fragmented snapshots draw on the artist’s own encounters with sometimes sentimentally recalled scenes from inside and outside of ‘home’—wherever it may, or could be.
