Donna Walker: Modern Color Fields

Landscape painters often remark on the challenge to simplify the natural world into the bounds of a canvas. Leonardo da Vinci wrote that simplicity is the “ultimate sophistication.” Among those that consider simplicity in art as an ideal achievement, Donna Walker has a simplified, bold, and often whimsical approach to the rural scene with oil paint and a palette knife. She said that she enjoys the textures and shapes created by the knife. She said, “My goal is to remove what is not needed, leaving only the few elements that create a harmonious painting. My background in printmaking has affected my style, in the way that I layer color and create each composition.” Walker now lives in Fort Worth, Texas. She received her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan and her works are in numerous large private collections. The playfulness of her work naturally lends itself to story-telling. Our student tours this fall will include an activity for creative writing inspired by the whimsy of “Modern Color Fields.” – Amanda Mobeley Guenther, curator, Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art 2016
