VIDEO FLASHBACK! From Steven Walker's 2019 Exhibit, "Within"

What led to Walker's latest series, "Complete Transparency" Began with a look Within! What started with his love of music blossomed.... 

Walker brought to life fabled women of song like Mustang Sally and Brandy while combining their imagined likeness with cityscapes and still lifes montaged into one image. The compositions were not unlike the aesthetic of classic movie posters by Drew Struzan but with much more ingenuity in weaving the parts together. Steven worked this series on and off for ten years; seven before he even showed Glave Kocen Gallery what he was up to.  Under the pen name, “George Mallory” Steven created a 36” x 36” painting called, “Judy” based on the one hit wonder by John Fred and his Playboys, “Judy in Disguise with Glasses.”  The piece sold before it hit the wall and was the ONLY work in this series where he used the pen name. More works were created in 2017 and sold well that December at the Miami Art Fair which signaled to Glave Kocen and Steven this series is meant to be created and exhibited. From that day to this Steven has still included the music impetus but it is much more in the background.  Walker expanded his work to include the collaboration of about a dozen models which shifted the focus and meaning behind his works.

The idea of the potential within each one of us resonated with Steven. He became very inspired by the models (chosen purposefully to represent a wide range of diversity) whose glowing cityscapes are representing their inner light harnessed to its fullest potential. In the wake of so many people saddened by a divided nation, these paintings will remind the viewer that we have the power within us all to live our best life and be a beacon for each other.
