Lesley Anne Walker
June 12 - July 10, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, June 12 from 6pm to 8pm
Samara Gallery is pleased to present Atmospheric Forms, a solo exhibition of new works by Lesley Anne Walker. In her newest body of work, Walker focuses in on the energy produced from the observed and imagined—the atmospheric re-building of the form, and the visible and intangible constructions of what has been lost and will be found. Walker’s works are grounded in nature, yet offer a glimpse of the imperceptible.
The artist states, “In effect, my creative process is a synthesis of reconstituted imagery, countless layering, and rebuilding of a surface. Observed forms allow a myriad of visual possibilities to be revealed. These essential discovery-based experiences fuel the poetic and provide soul for all to engage.” Walker reconstructs reality through a variety of media, including watercolor and ink, printmaking, collage, and oil painting. These various mediums serve as a perceptible portal for ideas to emerge and be considered.
Lesley Anne Walker grew up in Houston, Texas, and received a BFA from Southern Methodist University and a MFA from Houston Baptist University this year. This is the first solo show for Lesley Anne Walker, who has previously been exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally.
