Joe Walters

Joe Walters creates site-specific installations of visual complexity and beauty which metaphorically address issues involving human relationships with nature. Although his work is based on organic forms, taken as a whole the artist considers his work as abstract compositions. Elements such as birds, branches, fallen leaves, flowers, seedpods, aquatic life, etc. are carefully chosen elements that are ordered into grand sculptural installations structured within spiral and geometric forms. When viewed from various vantage points, the "interwoven" sculptures and the shadows they project against the wall create a luminous, tapestry-like effect reinforcing Walters' theme of the interdependence of all living things.
