This a 2nd Edition work in the Illuminations series.
Clearly the illuminations Collection lights up a room. M.G.Walker’s works bring together the abstract and conceptual side of art through the utilization of simple linear building blocks echoing familiar forms employed in daily life. The transparency of glass combined with straight lines give the work a sense of serene simplicity transcending the complex structure and design. Walker, employing the most fundamental of artistic forms – the straight line, creates objects of art, which deftly balance architectural outer structure with ever-changing interior optical impact.
Each individual component of glass making up each completed piece is individually hand crafted and then set in place relative to the other components. The combined effect creates tension between static visual lines and implied movement that delights the eye while engaging the viewer. The delicate manner in which, the straight line is employed by Walker in this exclusive series, invites the viewer to explore the relationship between the straight lines and arching curves.
