Solitude, human nature, and dialogue are at the core of Richard T. Walker’s work. Walker employs a variety of media, including video, music, photography, sculpture and performance–often intermixed–to explore and question the experience of the individual within the natural landscape.
Walker (b. 1977, Shrewsbury, UK) received his MA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, 2005. His work is held in the collections of SFMOMA, Kadist Foundation (San Francisco / Paris), and the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen (K21), Dusseldorf, amongst others. He has exhibited and performed world wide, including solo and group exhibitions at SFMOMA; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts; The Contemporary Austin; The Times Museum, Guangzhou, China; The Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro; Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art; and Witte De With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam, among other venues. Walker has been an Irvine Fellow at the Montalvo Art Center and a resident at The Headlands Center for the Arts and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He received an Artadia Award in 2009.
