We are pleased to present a new prints project by the distinguished Contemporary painter, John Walker (born 1939, Birmingham, England) . They are titled Fenway I, II, III, IV and the group was produced while Walker was a visiting artist at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
Born in Birmingham, England, John Walker was awarded the Harkness and Guggenheim Fellowships. He was awarded artist-in-residence at Oxford University and Monash University, Australia. In 1972 he represented England at the Venice Biennale. He has taught at the Royal College of London, Yale University, and Boston University, and his work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum, MOMA, MFA Boston, Cleveland Museum, Tate Gallery, British Museum
Fenway II is a sugar lift aquatint with hand coloring. The rough-hewn patterns and soft-edged colors are draw upon memory and observation of the New England landscape and seascape. These robust works are the latest in Walker’s long and distinguished career.
