John Walker's Landscape Paintings
Nicholas Forrest wrote a beautifully descriptive review of John Walker's landscape paintings at Tim Olsen Gallery for Art Info.
In his latest series of large-scale paintings, a rogue element emerges that dominates the canvas yet awakens the landscape scene to which it is tied. Mimicking the ebb and flow of the polluted Maine coast waterway that is his favoured muse, at one moment the totemic forms – provocatively shrouded in yellows, reds and blues – entice the viewer into the landscape, the next moment they command undivided attention. And so it continues.
