CONTINUOUS FLOWING ENTITIES
Artistic turbulence thickens the air. The unusual passages of colors at its most sensuous and evocative, construct: collage, appropriate, and manipulate images in Joy Walker's work. Their sequence, while silent, feels musical, in the way that it flavors time, and fluidity, in the way it plays night wine with spatial perception. It satisfies present cravings in a series of process-oriented abstractions that make Miro seem tame.
Unknown Visual Expanse
"Joy, your wafer-thin pieces are fat-free, with no artificial colors or preservatives - irresistible to this ocular gourmet."
In a letter, October 1994 -
"None of these new works look like objects, surfaces or depictions. One has the sense of peering through a sharp-edged hole in the wall at parts of some unknown visual expanse.
In fact, implied continuation of a field is a constant in Walker's oeuvre, along with an emotive display of color held in check by powerfully graphic shapes, whether geometric or organic."
Art in America, September 1995
