charles walker received his ba in art from wake forest university and his mfa in studio arts at university of georgia. "my work is primarily interested in some of the more intangible aspects of the human experience - mood, tone, and the atmospheric nature of how we as humans perceive the world. i don't look to art to tell a story, to take up issues - whether social or political. all i look to art to do is to simply exist and in so existing to express something in the simplest and most direct manner possible. in my case, through a simple application and repetition of line, color, and texture i try to find the mainline into the human soul shaded by my personal perception. as hard as I try to remove my biases and input i still find myself lingering around in the corners of my work."
