Using personal, as well as randomly acquired photographic source material to start the developmental process, memories play an important role in her painting praxis. Wheeler’s work moves through a series of changes, similar to way that our memories are fluid and often unfixed, subject to embellishment and fade. The final works that emerge demonstrate something ‘other’, where recognition is confounded and meaning is limited.

Linda Wheeler is currently undertaking a Master of Visual Arts by Research at La Trobe University, Bendigo. She has exhibited widely across Victoria in both group and solo shows.
