Currently based out of Austin, Texas, USA, Win Wallace creates fairly sized Charcoal and Conté pieces that explores the “tension and pathos of life in a semi-fictional world where the spiritual, the historical, the symbolic, and the wild exist simultaneously in a struggle with simple humanity.” Say that ten times fast. Wallace originally hails from the lovely US state of Georgia.
“Increasing globalization seems desirous of effecting the same homogenization on every corner of the planet. Distinct culture, spirituality, identity and even the symbols of our humanity exist in peril alongside our brothers and sisters in the animal kingdom and the environment at large. We exist together already as one, but we shouldn’t work so hard to be the same. More control and more regularity have never been sources of enlightenment or positive evolution. All my work deals with the pathos and contradictions of this confusion.”
