Wilding will be the first solo commercial exhibition for young Melbourne artist Valentina Palonen. She has a diverse practice that includes oil and watercolour painting as well as mixed media figurative sculptures. This exhibition focuses upon personal experiences of the natural world within artificial and constructed landscapes. By drawing on ambiguous and stylised natural imagery, the works displayed explore our complicated and distanced relationship with nature in the urban environment.

Opening: 3pm Saturday 3 August 2013
Exhibition closes: 31 August 2013
Location: Gould Galleries, 270 Toorak Road, South Yarra VIC 3141
