Linear Movement: Lillian Paige Walton

SUPLEX is pleased to present 13 works by Lillian Paige Walton in an online exhibition titled Linear Movement. Originally exhibited in Dallas in 2013 at Oil and Cotton, Walton now presents her work to a larger audience on the web.

The show’s title, Linear Movement, echoes the calligraphic, organic, and obsessive marks that characterize Lillian Paige Walton’s recent body of work. Line-work serves as the foundation for the two and three-dimensional works that Walton has been developing from a series of drawings she created in mid 2012. Though she primarily employs painting and drawing mediums, Walton describes her current method of working as most closely resembling a collage technique. Walton takes disparate elements from a variety of sources (which Walton cites as ranging from Surrealist painting, household objects, to Devo album art ) and combines them with various methods of mark­making. The resulting abstract compositions are reminiscent of aquatic landscapes, science fiction B­movies, and bewitched breakfast foods...all of which, considering paige's diverse canon of influences, likely serve as inspiration.

Lillian Paige Walton (b. 1990) received a BFA in Studio Art and a BA in Art History from the University of North Texas in 2012. She has participated in numerous group and juried exhibitions in the DFW metroplex. Recently, her work was selected for the Rising Eyes of Texas 2013 (Rockport Center for the Arts). Walton will attend Hunter college in New York City in the spring of 2014 to pursue her masters degree in Painting. She currently lives and works in Houston, Texas.
