Los Angeles

Clay Walker

Kramer Gallery

For his first Los Angeles showing Walker presents four vaguely related types of work—dark, loosely architectonic oils, red and blue patchwork gouaches, wood relief constructions with humorous overtones, end silvery canvas appliqué collages. In touching so many undistinguished bases, he flirts at the perimeter of structure and personal style, and arouses only vague aspersions upon his intent. A coherent direction perhaps will be forthcoming, but as each diversity is so completely defined, it is problematical. On the other hand, as recompense, his biographical notes and exhibition credits at the regional level make mildly impressive reading.
