Walter Nelson's journey began in 1967 and has spanned over 50 years. His journey into the visual arts was long and complex. He first explored the field of photography, traveling around the world, discovering spiritual places, deep landscapes, and places of origin, experimenting with abstract colors and textures, and always seeking the visual heart of existence in the desert, mountains, canyons, rivers, and cities.
In traveling this visual journey, he has relied on the masters, past and present, for inspiration in light and shadow, color, texture, form, and idea. He uses these inspirations as a point of departure for his voyages into visual delights and mystical realms, striving to be present in the moment, to take the viewer "from the without to the within and back to the without again".
He later explored painting and sculpture and combined all three into a richness of color, texture, and form, a unique and ever-expanding visual tapestry of mind and consciousness.
His life and art are a constant journey into the unknown, always looking ahead, never behind, a positive and spiritual quest to understand and portray inner and outer existence.
