'RIP IT UP AND START AGAIN' - Richard Walker
11 December 2013 - 10 January 2014
“1976 - my world catches fire. Romantic ideals meet trash culture. Punky reggae party. Fashionable Chelsea. A smashing time. Out on the town. Putting it about. Minsky’s Gallery 1978 - one/man show business."
This show is an opportunity to view a selection of Walker’s 1970’s works which form part of a larger exhibition scheduled for the Spring of 2014 which will celebrate the British ‘Punk’ legacy. Walker’s work at Sandra Higgins' Gallery Petit successfully transports its viewers back to the wild anarchic spirit of ‘punk’ only moments away from where it all erupted on the Kings Road.
Walker’s work marks an eruption of extraordinary creative expression, which burst onto international cultural scenes of the 70’s. The original screen prints, produced between 1975 and 1978, celebrate the provocative and edgy spirit within which they were made. Walker’s prints are ‘cheeky and irreverent, bright and bold’. The overlapping imagery, experimental dynamic angles and rapid markings mirror the provocative and rebellious character of ‘punk’.
Viewing by appointment only.
