MKG127 is very pleased to present The Shape of Things,
an exhibition of new work by Joy Walker.

In The Shape of Things, repeated forms bump up against each other, overlap, and undulate, jostling for position in works perched precariously between order and unpredictability, precision and imperfection.

As a former textile designer, Walker used exacting systems of repetition to organize elements into patterns where precision was key. Her work as an artist often refers back to her prior practice, both quoting and challenging its underlying assumptions.

Joy Walker is a Montréal born, Toronto-based artist whose work takes the form of sculpture, video, drawing and printmaking. Her approach is guided by intuition and is marked by a strong interest in process, materiality and play. Her work has been exhibited widely, including 8eleven Gallery, The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery (Toronto), Plug-In Institute of Contemporary Art (Winnipeg), Truck Gallery (Calgary), Dunlop Gallery (Regina), Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery, (Halifax), Rodman Hall (St. Catharines, ON), Cambridge Galleries (ON), Venice (Italy), NYC, Chicago, and Miami. Walker’s works are held in several private and public collections.

In 2018 Walker will produce an artist project at the TextielLab in the Netherlands and her work will be included in NUT II, the second edition of a yearly publication of works on paper by female artists which will be released at A.I.R. Gallery in Dumbo, NY.

Joy Walker would like to acknowledge the support of the Ontario Arts Council.
