Art: Variations and Meanderings on the Mandala

via ARTFIXdaily, on the new works by Robert Walker at Heather James Fine Art,

Approaching painting as a sculptor, Walker’s new work combines the usage of intricate bas-relief surfaces produced from multi-layers of segmented paint that are fused together, producing multi-colored images and topographical surface areas.  Walker has long been a student of Buddhism and his abstract compositions are variations of traditional images used in Buddhist illustration.

Walker’s drawings are essentially non-traditional in the use of materials and include a series of what he calls “Hard Drawings” which are variations and meanderings on the mandala.
