JFW at Eastern Connecticut State University

Posted in art news by JFW on September 2, 2012

I’ve just installed my exhibition “John Frederick Walker: The Altered Book,” at Eastern Connecticut State University’s J. Eugene Smith Library, and will be giving a lecture and studio workshop there on September 10th.  The exhibition is on view through September 30th.

Artist & Author John Frederick Walker to Visit Eastern – September 10, 2012
 
Locked Down Lepidopteran (2011). The insect order Lepidoptera includes butterflies and moths, whose mounted forms are often evoked in the artist’s work.  Walker’s frequent use of bolts to lock down pages, rendering their contents inaccessible, references loss of information.
