One Place, Two Views: John Walker and Kayla Mohammadi (January 25 – April 14, 2019)
Works on display at the Maier Museum of Art
Kayla Mohammadi is first generation American, born to a Finnish mother and Iranian father in San Francisco. John Walker was born in Birmingham, England and represented England at the 1972 Venice Biennale. Coming from diverse backgrounds, the two met at Boston University. Stylistically distinct, both are non-objective, abstract painters whose work is suggestive of landscape. The natural forms and features that surround their home in Maine are major sources of inspiration, especially Seal Point, the setting that has shaped their work. “One Place, Two Views” offers rich, complementary interpretations of a shared, beloved sense of place. While they have participated in the same group exhibitions before, this is the first time the couple has exhibited together in a two-person exhibition.
