The ink jet print of “Drums and Paint” reprises the artist’s interest in the studio experience as an integral part of his collective imagery. His notice of the strong contrast and "rich colour of the paint pot and the canvas surface" struck a resonance with him as did the "memory of sound" implied by his drum kit. The architectural composition of this photo work reflects Wallace’s formal interest in linear space and the bold warm colour imbues a strength which is unmistakably Wallace at his existential best.

The photograph "The Gifted Amateur (installation view)" is a production still which caught the eye of the artist as he created the set for his major lightbox work: "The Gifted Amateur" in 2007. It is a 'graham style' re-creation of a Morris Lewis inspired 1962 living room art studio. Rodney Graham's creation of elaborate sets have figured prominently in his work in recent years. Of special interest to Artists for Kids is the fact this work was built and photographed in the old Lonsdale school gym which is now the site of the new Artists for Kids Gallery in North Vancouver, BC.
