[SR: 2609009], Paperback, [EAN: 9780889842144], Porcupine's Quill, Porcupine's Quill, Book, [PU: Porcupine's Quill], 2000-04-01, Porcupine's Quill, `George A Walker did not make it into An Engraver's Globe, and looking through this collection of his wood engravings I see again exactly why. An editor should not present as a fool one who has persisted in his folly to become wise if the wisdom cannot really be shown in the space available: better to omit than risk making him look silly. On the evidence of just a couple of works George Walker does look clumsy in a field where finesse is prized, perhaps to excess. But give him his head, as here, and you see an artist of sustained and wacky integrity half way between Posada and Krazy Kat. ... `Is the work any good? Yes, of course it is. Of course, too, if you go for rough trade in wood engraving, you end where you began: some of this does look like beginner's work. But Walker does things with engraving I've not seen anyone else do: look at Raguwl, Angel of Vengeance. His images of people in cars are startlingly expressive: he can draw -- look at The Printer's hand and the break of light around him; has Walker bodged the ear here to prove he can't draw (so there!)? But he can and does. His small images have power and sometimes even humour and tenderness, even though he presents himself as an obsessive, the Mad Hatter of wood engraving.'

Walker, George A.:
The Inverted Line - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 9780889842144

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: PORCUPINES QUILL], Printmaker George A. Walker has assembled into one volume a collection of wood engravings that he has made during his career as an artist. He says in the introduction I hadn't ever really considered myself a wood-engraver ... [but] inevitably found myself making engravings on wood for my Artists' books. So you see I surprised myself when I realised that I had made hundreds of engravings over the years.... I fell into wood engraving much in the way one might fall into a pile of autumn leaves (not entirely by chance but the urge to jump in overcame me).' Why call this collection The Inverted Line? Walker goes on to explain: What I find seductive about wood engraving is the inverting of the line and the image.... I call it the inverted line. There are two reasons for this: the first is that the wood engraver is working with white lines in negative space and the second is that the image is backwards on the block before it's printed. However you see it, the black line of the artist's pen is transformed by its translation on the matrix to the impression on the paper. For every black line the engraver must cut two white lines on either side. It is this inversion of the lines, shapes and pattern that appeals to my temperament and begs to be explored.' George Walker is one of the most unusual wood engravers in the country, and works in a distinctly contemporary idiom. Using a dentist's drill, he routs out deep grooves which create bold graphic white lines, providing a brilliant black-white contrast.' - Patricia Ainslie, Glenbow Museum, Calgary Versandfertig in über 4 Wochen, Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot
