This exhibition of new drawings opens on March 15th and continues through April 15th, 2016. This is Walton’s fourth show with Kraushaar Galleries.
With Social Systems Walton continues his exploration of two-dimensional expression. Expanding upon his previous system drawings in which he recorded and transcribed games, either traditional team play or the individual challenges of contemporary computer play, Walton’s current body of work records human interaction on its most fundamental level. In a statement, he explains his inspiration:
Social Systems drawings operate through an inherent system of responses in which each individual mark is in direct relationship to another. The grouping of marks is bound to the surrounding architectural structures, although some find ways to escape their barriers. Patterns of behavior, interactions and events emerge to create unique social situations.
