Kate Wallace: A place once travelled


26 March — 31 July

A place once travelled looks at ideas of isolation and solitude in the landscape. In conversation with works drawn from the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery’s collection, Wallace contemplates the relationship between self and that of the surrounding environment.

Drawing on ideas of collecting, play and aimless wandering, the paintings look to explore the landscape as a site of reprieve and nostalgic escape from contemporary living.

Wallace 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. She has exhibited across galleries in Melbourne and is a recent recipient of a Career Development Grant from the Australia Council for the Arts.
