Selected Works


Symposium 2018

British Abstract Painting in the 1980s

The focus of this event was on developments in British Abstract painting in the 1980s and was intended as a reassessment of British painters who have creatively contributed to the development of abstraction regionally, nationally and internationally. The eighties saw a transformation that shifted notions of how we think about what is possible or credible to pursue within painting.

Coventry Biennial 2017.

James Faure Walker

As part of the Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art, Class Room exhibited recent paintings by James Faure Walker (born London 1948). Faure Walker studied at St Martins (1966-70) and the Royal College of Art (1970-1972), and has exhibited widely at home and overseas.

Noted for its lyricism and exuberant colour, Faure Walker’s work has integrated computer graphics with painting since the 1980s. In 1998 won the ‘Golden Plotter’ prize at Computerkunst in Gladbeck, Germany. His 2006 book ‘Painting the Digital River: How an Artist Learned to Love the Computer’, won a New England Book Show Award. His work was included in ‘Digital Pioneers’ in 2009 at the Victoria and Albert Museum. In 2013 he won the Royal Watercolour Society Award.
