Fists

The sculptural series 'Fists' are objects that have either been vacuum-metalised or hydrographically wrapped in patterns, which are placed within novelty drinking fists designed to hold beer cans. The fists feature as props in the film 'A Virus Walks into a Bar' through which Walter believes they have been charged with narrative meaning. They are like sconces mounted to the wall holding the structural motifs of proteins.

Euclidean Gouaches

These 10 gouache paintings on paper follow on directly from Walter’s watercolours. Whereas the earlier images float in an ambiguous spatial soup, the gouaches strain the image pool and restage them in a Euclidean pictorial fashion. Each painting features different magnified viruses, positioned within a broader world of representations and cultural information. Unlikely relationships between images are established by placing them within a shared illusionistic space, a kind of cartoon surrealism. They are drawings for performances that will never happen or stills from an unmade, fevered animation.
