Large Paintings on Paper

Walter’s large paintings on paper are test sites and blast zones for images and texts that he has been using during the CAPSID project, including recurring motifs of the tag, triskelion and nucleotides. This series of 20 paintings employs forms that look like capsids, such as the Rio 2016 Olympic logo or rubber urinal mats, a strategy that is characteristic of Walter’s maximalist artistic practice, which conjoins unlikely cultural reference points.

Allostery Screenprints

Allostery is the process by which molecules bond to enzymes triggering chemical changes that control them. These silkscreen prints take Walter’s pattern-making and interest in abstraction to new levels of dizzying complexity. They are influenced by Walter’s visit to Las Vegas where he photographed the carpets found in each casino on the Strip. As compositional experiments they employ a kind of theme-and-variation that disrupts the eye from settling, employing paper stencils that modify and individualise a central image.
