Richard Walker’s paintings examine the experience of looking, how the world is seen and experienced and how that experience might be recorded. For him the activity of painting is problem solving – the problems being conceptual and material at the same time – and what he makes are representations of his evolving visual understanding of his place in the world. They are not so much inquiries into the nature of the physical world as they are an artist’s reaction to it, translated in terms of paint, in a studio.

Richard Walker is a painter living and working in Ayrshire and was a tutor of painting at The Glasgow School of Art between 2009 and 2022. Over the past thirty years he has created a significant body of work characterised by its rigour, consistency and critical acuity.
