Justine Walker

Justine Walker’s work follows an interest in feminine subjectivity and identity. She draws heavily on her own experience of the world and the things that don’t make sense to her on any level. In particular, Walker is interested in the expectations and limitations that society puts on all of us based on our gender, age, sexuality, ethnicity and so on. Using photography, video, sculpture, drawing and craft to investigate how women are responding to these expectations and what society is creating in reality.
