Walker’s work exemplifies his fusion of rural handyman with the aesthetics of trained painter and sculptor. In a parody of Modernist machismo, his shipyard scrap and metal scroungings abound with phallic imagery and militant bravado. While noting Walker’s outsider status as an artist, Jenker places him within a variety of artistic traditions.
