Wylie trips on Mars

  • Anna Kenneally

Wylie trips on Mars shows a future world, in which figures are spliced onto an alien landscape. Fragmented females on Mars are loosely painted, un-weaving the static format of photographic collage.Traces of the familiar remain, as Wylie's paintings bleed through the construction of imagery, evoking the impression from which they were originally painted. These primitive marks anchor the forms in the now, while exposing the transient nature of artistic allusion.
