Philip Maberry & Scott Walker
Philip Maberry & Scott Walker is active/lives in California. Philip Maberry Scott Walker is known for Ceramic sculpture, reliefs and objects.
For more than twenty-five years Phillip Maberry and Scott Walker have created one-of-a-kind ceramic sculpture, reliefs and objects for gallery and museum installations as well as having fulfilled numerous residential and commercial commissions. Best known for their eccentric, intensely colorful style associated with the 'Pattern and Decoration" movement, Maberry and Walker's most recent body of work, titled Pool Toys continues the investigation of constructed figurative forms.
Utilizing color and design, articulated in the artists' characteristic playful manner where their emphasis has always been on modern interpretations of past decorative styles, their work is infused with an optimistic spirit.
The Pool Toys effect clever spatial gambits within compressed, deceptively simple interplays of surface ornamentation and sculptural articulation. Although the artists work in the time-honored ceramic tradition, they are continually expanding the focus of their work to include new technologies, such as digital transfer processes, glow-in-the-dark glazes and other new materials.
Phillip Maberry and Scott Walker have had regular exhibitions at a galleries in New York City and Santa Monica as well as the 1983 Whitney Biennial.
Their work is included in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Newark Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
They now live and work in the High Desert near Joshua Tree.
