In A decaying fort and a lack of guidance, Walker explores the language of public monuments — taking inspiration from her home province of Nova Scotia.
This series combines embossed graphite rubbings of local historical sites with translucent screen-printed imagery on delicate handmade papers. In opposition to the fixed memorials from which they are taken, Walker analyzes the defining moments of European colonial activity and Canadian sovereignty, splitting them up and rearranging them like a set of magnetic refrigerator poetry. Through this action she highlights the notion of heritage as a living entity, that can be re-evaluated and reframed.
Walker exhibits widely throughout North America and internationally. Her prints are housed in several public and private collections and have been selected for numerous awards. She was the Okanagan Print Triennial (OPT) winner in 2018.
