Texts by Aoife Mac Namara and Emily Falvey
This publication accompanies Railway Lands, a travelling exhibition of work by Ottawa artist, Eric Walker. Meticulously assembling painted constructions from found objects, discarded building materials, paint, aluminum sheeting and thousands of box-nails, Walker bridges the gap between Nova Scotia conceptual art and vernacular forms from the Maritime region. Walker’s work embodies a complex mixture of modernist idioms, reverence for regional history and folklore, and a post-modern obsession with process. Published by the Ottawa Art Gallery and designed by Lime Design Inc, this bilingual, full-colour catalogue features essays by Aoife Mac Namara and Emily Falvey.
