RICHARD WALKER (b. 1954)
Richard Walker was born in Yorkshire, England in 1954. His paintings depict the dramatic, urban city-scapes of America. Eerily reflected in harsh neon lights, or under electrifying skies, or sometimes, lit only by icy pools of light. Walker works with acrylic, pastels and spray paint to achieve maximum impact and appropriate textural effect. "In my work, I try to communicate not only the positive energies and excitement of city life but, also, the underlying dangers and feeling of unease that are also present." Walker's paintings are held in the collections of the British Council, Hammersmith and Fulham, Sheffield City Art Gallery, Citicorp Bank, Cleveland City Art Gallery, RCA Corporation and Westinghouse USA.
