Jeff Wallace

In his work, Wallace explores the role of revision and palimpsest as it relates to memory – the continuous process through which stories overlap, become diluted or erased over time.

‘My paintings and installations are constructions that amplify the relationship between time and memory. I use materials – primarily paper – that may be familiar to a viewer, but are not immediately recognizable out of context. With this medium, I am interested in preserving the ‘what was’ and in elevating the ‘as is’ to represent what remains present in memory with the passing of time – the colors, light, shapes and patterns of what is encountered in daily life.’
