Walker and Walker: Songs for my Father by Melanie and Todd Walker 

Artist Reception: Thursday, April 12, 7-9 pm, during Scottsdale’s ArtWalk.

Melanie will be available for questions and conversation.

Artist Statement:

The exhibition will be one of the first exhibitions of the work of father, Todd Walker (1917-1998) and daughter, Melanie Walker. All of the images generated in this exhibition were generated by Todd Walker. Both father and daughter share a curiosity about the materiality of photographic processes and have spent their lives pushing the boundaries of the medium. After many years of working with her father’s vast archive that spanned a career in photography of 60 years, Melanie Walker began working with some early images that had been ravaged by time in order to freeze them in their states of compromise. The images are treated in a variety of mixed media approaches from platinum/palladium prints to waxed infused Japanese Kozo paper to convey a sense of fragility and the fragmentary nature of time.
