John Walker, New Paintings

Ikon Gallery, Oozells Square, Birmingham, West Midlands, B1 2HS
John Walker, New Paintings

About

Ikon presents a major exhibition of a selection of new paintings by Birmingham-born artist John Walker (b. 1939), recently described as "one of the standout abstract painters of the last 50 years" (Cate McQuaid, Boston Globe, 2014).

This exhibition will feature new "anti-scenic" paintings, inspired by the landscape of Maine where Walker is now living, especially locations that are polluted, neglected or abandoned. His connection to the natural world in which he works is evident in his tendency to mix natural materials—mostly mud—into his paints. Stripes and zigzags, frequently occurring, are graphic versions of the changing rhythms of how the ocean meets the shore, as waves or tide.
