Ian Wallace

Photo: Ian Wallace

A poet of images, artist Ian Wallace explores the interplay between form and content, using photography as a vehicle for developing an avant-garde art that weds the strategies of conceptualism with the pictorial tropes of painting. In doing so since the late 1960s, he became the pioneer of a photoconceptualism that fundamentally influenced and reconfigured contemporary art practice in Vancouver, not least through his teaching such artists as Jeff Wall, Rodney Graham, Ken Lum and Stan Douglas.

Wallace’s art encourages a sophisticated involvement from the viewer. His works awaken the allegorical, symbolic potential of everyday subject matter, investing ostensibly non-eventful scenes with meaning. Since the 1980s, Wallace has taken photographs of his hotel rooms. These personal, intimate, yet transitory spaces act as temporary studios whilst he travels. As described by Wallace in an interview with writer Gigiotto del Vecchio, Mousse magazine, ‘It is in the space of the studio that the drama between materials and concept take place’ (2010).

‘The photographic aspect is bringing meaning and representation of the everyday into focus; the monochrome is almost like the antipode of photographic meaning – it’s about historical positioning,’ Wallace has said. This joining together of figuration and abstraction creates a delicate conjunction of incompatibles whose reconciliations might take place in the viewer’s mind. In this way, the artist’s pensive, reverberating art calls attention beyond its apparent subject matter to the act of looking itself.
