Sneak Peeks: The Work of John Walker
January 13, 2011
In the upcoming March/April issue of New England Home we will be featuring the work of painter John Walker. For the better part of the last sixty years Walker has been crafting a skilled hand that makes his work expressive yet effortless. His paintings are striking and bold while conveying a simple, subtle sense of emotion and soul. What first seems abstract can suddenly appear as a landscape, or a still life, or just as quickly change to handwriting or letterforms. As Walker’s career has constantly evolved, so do his paintings, right before your eyes.
Currently the head of the graduate painting program at Boston University, Walker maintains studios in both Boston and Maine. For more on his life and painting process–as well as a wide range of his work spanning his impressive career–be sure to pick up our March/April issue.
