Robert Walker Exhibition at Heather James Fine Art in Palm Desert


Apr 26, 2014
9:00 am until 5:00 pm


The visual effect of Robert Walker’s recent work is both subtle and hypnotic. Approaching painting as a sculptor, Walker’s new work combines intricate bas-relief surfaces produced from multi-layers of segmented paint that are fused together producing multi-colored images and topographical surface areas. Walker has long been a student of Buddhism, and his abstraction compositions are variations of traditional images used in Buddhist illustration.

Walker’s drawings are essentially non-traditional in the use of materials and include a series of what he calls “Hard Drawings” which are variations and meanderings on the mandala. In Buddhist theory, mandalas are created as a tool for visualization and meditation. The mandala is a container of energy, a universal symbol that relates to the imagery we contemplate on a cosmic level and realize on the temporal level.

Robert Walker was born in Los Angeles where he lives and works today. He received his MFA from the University of California, Irvine and has shown extensively in the United States, Asia, and South East Asia.
