PETER WALKER: TANGLEWOOD 30 September - 27 November 2022
Peter Walker is a visual artist, furniture designer, surfboard builder, and an esteemed educator with an extending influence. Throughout Walker’s creative practice he encourages audiences to reflect on the nature of wood and its origins. In this exhibition he draws our attention to trees and their surrounding ecology in the Australian bush. Through a series of three-dimensional works, he combines sculptural composition with elements of design to explore the inherent abstract qualities of timber. Each chaotic tangle of fallen eucalyptus branches is spliced together using fine furniture techniques that blur the boundary between naturally formed occurrences and human-made structures. Peter Walker: Tanglewood documents the material poetry of a master craftsperson grounded in curiosity, dexterity and a commitment to making the impossible, possible.
Peter Walker currently leads the University of South Australia’s Master of Design program as Program Director. This exhibition, and the accompanying monograph co-published with Wakefield Press, are supported through the ongoing partnership between JamFactory and the University of South Australia.
