Henry Jock Walker

Live ephemeral performance is an integral aspect of surfing culture. Henry Walker’s intuitive performances of abstract painting and making in an art space, studio, public or surfing context are documented and displayed by hijacking methods of presentation from surf culture. The crossover of surfing action and action painting morphs his practice onto a unique platform for exploration between the surfing and art community. Walker has exhibited at TCB Inc, Melbourne (Somethingland, 2012), Nexus Gallery, Adelaide (Endless Summer, 2012) and was the recipient of the 2011 Victorian College of Art Graduation Rearview Exhibition Prize and the 2009 Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition Prize.
