Guilford artist Rex Prescott Walden’s solo show, “To Italy,” evokes not just landscape, but the country’s maritime past. Walden’s collage from maps, charts and found objects does the trick.
Walden hopes to “set the viewer off on a journey, maybe to a place he or she has never been before,” he told Pulse. “I like to make them think beyond the two dimensions of the piece.”
His inspiration for the show at the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery has been Connecticut’s shoreline, but this time he took his vision across the Atlantic.
“Sometimes, as an artist, you have to push yourself to make new marks,” he said.
