Agatha - Jenolan Caves 2020 oil on linen 90 x 120 cm
For over two decades Deborah Walker has created imagery that includes both personal chronicles as well as questions about the nature of the real. In her work the real evokes a sense of recognition in the viewer, but on closer viewing these works retain a dreamlike and unnamable quality that is resistant to being fully known.
