Art of Murray Walker | Author: Sasha Grishin

Murray Walker (b. 1937 ) is a distinguished printmaker, a significant and recognised painter, a pioneering assemblage sculptor and collage artist, a ceramicist, a prolific tapestry designer and a nationally renowned and widely published authority on Australian colonial arts.

His art is tough, challenging, at times unpalatable and frequently unfashionable. There is a visual curiosity, excitement and intensity in his art and a certain 'compression' where something that initially looks simple and directly engages the eye, on further viewing, becomes immensely complex, cerebral and in need of close and prolonged contemplation. Once you allow yourself to enter the world of Murray Walker you will be surprised, amused, horrified, delighted and inspired.
