CURRENT EXHIBITION


 April 5 – 28, 2018

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.

Artist Statement:

My work has its genesis in my childhood and family roots. Both of my grandfathers were copious family documentarians. From my maternal grandfather I first learned photography and after he died I inherited an old view camera that I used for several bodies of work. My father was a more direct influence, my original photography instructor, a psychotherapist and grief expert, (with specific focus on transformation in loss) he nurtured in me an obsession with observing and marking transitions and perhaps as well strong dose of drama.

The tools and the output of my work vary significantly within photography: snapshot, appropriation, scanner images, medium and large format film, black and white and color, film and video. Always the work concerns itself with photographic mediation and the way in which the photographic image creates, conveys and alters cultural values and relationships, specifically integration of ideas of family, relationships and broader socio-political implications of how we create meaning and structure through photography.

The work in this show is a selection from work from the past 20 years of my career—specifically work related to my children.
