February 12: Maria Walker

Maria Walker grounds her painting practice in the consideration of wood, canvas, and paint—the basic materials of painting. This approach to the painting object allows for a focused, lively studio practice in which the paintings may grow, reroute, flip, curve, and stand, each pursuing its own specific question, reaching towards life and a better understanding of painting.

Maria Walker received her MFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art and her BA in Visual Art from Brown University, where she also completed a Capstone Project in Poetry. She attended the Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture in 2011, and received an Individual Grant from the Belle Foundation for Cultural Development in 2013. Walker has exhibited in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Berlin, Montreal, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Baltimore, San Diego, Seattle, and Provincetown. Walker’s work has been published in the Smithsonian Magazine and reviewed as a Critic’s Pick on Artforum.com, as well as in the Brooklyn Rail, New American Paintings, Beautiful Decay, and Two Coats of Paint.
