The Palimpsests drawings take their title from a term meaning a text or image that has been drawn or written over. This series of ten drawings accumulates images in translucent layers in an attempt to find new relationships that can create unexpected visual and conceptual equations for subsequent paintings and films. What seems an odd assortment, like the disparate graffiti of a school desk or lavatory wall, combines to form a visual record of accidental assonance.

pH Lithographs

Scientists have debated the role that the pH level in the cell and in the capsid plays in viral replication. The pH Lithographs, which riff on those discussions, are Walter’s first experiments with lithography. Like his silkscreen prints, these lithographs are monoprints that employ a theme-and-variation approach to a core central image – the cytoplasm of a cell. The translucent effect of lithography allows layering and gradients of colour using ink rollers, similar to the gradated spectrum found in pH level detection charts.
