Combining exceptional glass making skills with a novelist’s ability for storytelling, Walker literally sculpts his glass, creating artworks that are the essence of curiosity, inviting the viewer closer.
His 'Still Life' compositions have the poise of classical paintings. Symbols of domestic life are carefully balanced with the transient. Clear glass is given substance and presence yet coaxed to create ghostly counterparts of the real objects that Walker stylishly recreates. The dazzling and hypnotic shimmering PVC simply enhances what is above, a myriad of hues reflect, distort and permeate through this translucent landscape.
However, these colours, suggestive of life, do not emanate from the rigid and lifeless lobster and corals but are fleeting reflections that trick the viewer. Poignant and timely, this is Walker’s stark warning for the endangered beauty, which for now, can still be found within our seas.
