Peter Walker: Last Supper Dance

June 12, 2004 - June 27, 2004


Year 2004 Theme Drawing & Printmaking, Nova Scotian Artists, Painting, Sculpture & Installation

New paintings of biblical dimensions make up this impromptu exhibition. Nova Scotian artist Peter Walker is known for his mastery of trompe-l’oeil (fool-the-eye) illusionism and his skill with airbrush and stencil. Yet his infrequent exhibitions put spectators on the spot. Is it OK to admire the technique and ignore the subject matter, or would it be better just to admit that one is thrilled/repelled by his version of Roman Catholic iconography?
