COLOR-FIELDS - Flower Photographs

Prototype, 2013

The flower photographs… are as flat as wallpaper. This is a considerable accomplishment. It’s probably too late in cultural time to photograph a naturalistic flower in a naturalistic context (meadow or vase). It’s all been done and overdone. But Walker’s flat, flag-like flowers are all his own: raucously lovely (like signs of flowers rather than the real thing) and – as a result – rapturously new.
