Luke M Walker

About Luke M Walker

About the artwork

Framed in a simple square section dark stained timber frame. London, as with most cities is in a constant state of change, buildings seem permanent and immovable but all will eventually go. Many are lost to catastrophic events; the Great Fire, the Blitz, usually it is a gradual war of attrition, of boom and bust, fashion or just neglect. It is often only the underlying structure that remains, the mediaeval street patterns, the sewerage system, the infrastructure on which a city survives which acts as a palimpsest of its former incarnation. It is this transience that Luke M Walker aims to examine in this latest body of work, as a painter and walking artist who has spent much of the last ten years exploring the streets of London. As an architecturally-trained Interior and Spatial Designer, Walker is regularly drawn to the construction sites, documenting these markers of change before, during and after their transformation. From a lofty position on some of the city’s highest landmarks, from Vauxhall to St Paul's to The Sky Gardens, Walker paints the fluid nature of the city as is morphs its way along the Thames like the turning of the tides.
