Into the Woods is the culmination of a long fascination with forests and bushland. Based in Portland, Wallace immerses herself in the environment, particularly in the grandeur of the Cobboboonee National Park, in search of solace. In this exhibition, Wallace creates a visual translation of her experiences, while highlighting the destructive forces of over-consumption on the landscape. Through found objects, sculpture and a one-hundred-metre long canvas, the exhibition charts the evolution of the environment and a human’s presence within it.
