Walker considers the state of over-thinking a situation so that a decision is never made. His abstract paintings present the viewer with a dizzying array of works. Each piece is covered by a translucent black or white bandana so that only a hint of color can be seen. The bandanas’ paisley motif has roots in a Persian symbol of life and eternity, and has been used by pirates, cowboys, and street gangs. Walker’s shrouded paintings evoke the discussion on the death of painting. However, these paisley veils also recall the idea of resurrection and a cautious optimism amid anxiety.
