Peter Walker: Flagmen of the Apocalypse
by Ingrid Jenkner & Peter Walker
Producer: MSVU Art Gallery
Production/Release Date: April 2001
Walkers 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 Walkers outsider status as an artist, Jenker places him within a variety of artistic traditions.
