Peter Walker: Last Supper Dance
12 Jun 2004 – 27 Jun 2004
A Flower for Saint Sebastion 2003
charcoal, oil, acrylic on canvas
New paintings of biblical dimensions make up this impromptu exhibition. Nova Scotian artist Peter Walker is known for his mastery of trompe-loeil (fool-the-eye) illusionism and his skill with airbrush and stencil. Yet his infrequent exhibitions put spectators on the spot. Is it OK to admire the technique and ignore the subject matter, or would it be better just to admit that one is thrilled/repelled by his version of Roman Catholic iconography?
