Melbourne based artist Kate Wallace looks to record and translate her own experience of place and urban living through the dialogue of representational painting. Using techniques such as scale, cropping, blur, repetition, montage and detail, her works are concerned with the translation of memory and construction of past through painting. Informed by photographs taken in wait or transit, Wallace considers our shared view of the world as an intimate counterpoint to the fast and constant experience of today.
Kate completed a Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne in 2018, receiving the Wingate Student Fellowship Art Prize. Kate has exhibited across galleries in Melbourne and is a recent recipient of a Career Development Grant from the Australia Council for the Arts.
