Marco Walker

Marco Walker is an image maker working within the boundaries of photography, collage, alternative print methods and immersive photographic installations. Best known for his landscape imagery, his works have a unique and timeless feel that seem to endure this ever changing digital world. His works engage with themes of escapism and paradise, celebrating nature’s beauty whilst at the same time, through his use of colours, he reminds the viewer of our disconnect to it.

 

Marco Walker's works manipulate and embrace colour in an act of reclamation.  Reclaiming all environments: the lost, the imaginary, and even the ubiquitous.  Regardless of their origin, Walker transforms them, mobilizing photography, alternative print methods, and collage to create places which are distinctly their own.  Connected to their origin but also unique departures from it.

 

Walker's use of colour to evoke the sense of escapism brings his works to the forefront of their environments.  His works actively project themselves into the environment around them, acting not only as a feature of their space - but as a participant in shaping it.
