Jeffrey Van de Walker
Jeffrey Van de Walker’s work has always been driven by form, line, and balance. In his early work, he was guided by a desire to create pieces with balance and interesting shape. Despite this, people often looked at his purely abstract work and found, within the lines and form, representations of images. Despite the certainty of many viewers that a particular sculpture was of a bird, a person, a bed, or a meadow, this occurred only as an accident; it was rare that he set out to represent an object. Recently, however, he has found himself drawn to imagery. In particular, he is drawn to images from nature. While his work remains abstract, it is no longer accident that one sees images, particularly animals, within.
