JASON WALKER: On the River, Down the Road at BAM

Jason Walker: On the River, Down the Road

October 3, 204–March 1, 2015
Bellevue Arts Museum, Bellevue, WA

A solo show of seven new, large-scale works

Northwest artist Jason Walker is widely celebrated for his skillfully executed ceramic sculpture. Treading a fine line between storytelling and social criticism, Walker’s work explores the human experience as reflected in Nature. His painted porcelain works, often taking the form of wild animals domesticated by industry, are simultaneously thought-provoking and unsettling. Bridging the dichotomous worlds of nature and technology represents, for the artist, “a journey to define for myself what it means to be human in the present time.” On the River, Down the Road is a site-specific installation created by Walker, who will transform the gallery into an enveloping, fantasy-driven world that—through richly detailed narratives and surrealist, apocalyptic imagery—offers an incisive comment on the indelible impact of humanity upon the natural landscape.
