Jake Walker’s practice is a self-consciously continuous process of creation, with the goal to make paintings with personality, self-sufficiency and ultimately, autonomy. His intimately scaled paintings are essentially abstract, yet imbued with an awareness of the messiness of life, reveling in the tactility and resourcefulness of the handmade. Incorporating elements of post-war readymades, monochromes and assemblages, he often uses found canvases and salvaged board as structures upon which to apply painted marks.
