Currently living in the London Nara Walker is an Australian born contemporary artist. She explores the physicality of creating within her work, presenting the viewer with paintings, performances, photographic work and at times mixing the mediums.
Nara is interested in the viewers perspective as the voyeur thus uses the process of revealing and concealing to course tension. Thus the viewer becomes more aware of their own thoughts and fantasy as to what they see.
Her work is sensual and expressionist creating a line between beauty and grotesque through application.
"Through lust and fantasy my work aims to manipulate the viewer into the voyeurs position. The body reacts to the touch of another, as does my work. Like a kiss to the back of the knee or a finger brushing up against the inside thigh. Each mark I make influences another due to the sensual side of making that mark. The medium reacts to the surface, the surface to the medium, my hands and other appliances creating that tactile connection. Each stroke, gesture or movement captured upon the surface representing the physicality and pleasure of creating for the voyeur to participate." Nara Walker
