In Walker's newest series, his polygons are infused with an internal light or glow, in much the same way that gems glow. Walker provides a 3D perspective with simplified forms by using complementary colors and contrasting the polygons and the fields on which they sit. Against a flat background, the polygons pop with color and texture: blue-green on deep red-orange; dense colors against light ones. Walker's paintings work particularly well in a pair or series.

Walker is best known for his large-scale, site-specific installations and collector's pieces created with laser-cut vinyl, colored acrylic sheets, artist-made stencils, tape, and paint. His use of pattern, lines, color, and geometry references the aesthetic traditions of Sol Lewitt and Henri Matisse, applied to the contemporary experience. Walker earned his MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, and his BFA from Texas A&M at Corpus Christi. He has had international commissions across the US and internationally, and solo exhibitions at galleries throughout the mid-Atlantic and southwest.
