Comments

One fateful afternoon in August of 2000, while flipping through his trusty Thomas Guide, artist J. Michael Walker began to notice how many L.A. streets began with the letter "S." Upon further inspection, he discovered that something else was repeating itself: "Santa Clara Avenue," "St. Andrews Place," "San Pablo Street"…they were all named for saints! Thus began Walker's quest to find and document every "saint-street" in L.A. Who named these streets after saints and why did they do so? What elements of the saints' stories can still be found on the grid? Where and how does contemporary life intersect with traditional western lore? These are the questions he sought to answer as he wandered through L.A.'s 103 streets named after saints.Playfully borrowing from various artistic genres-from illuminated manuscripts to comic strips-and encased in a sumptuous gold cover, All the Saints of the City of the Angels combines meticulous research with creative inspiration to depict, in paint and ink, Angelenos both historical and contemporary. Populated by the portraits of both the famous and the forgotten, and filled with stories and secrets from every age, this beautifully offbeat volume peels back layers of western history to reveal the humanity underneath.Walker's large-scale paintings, which were the source for All the Saints of the City of the Angels, will be the subject of a major exhibit at the Autry National Center from February 29 to September 7, 2008. j. Michael Walker, was born in Arkansas and came to Los Angeles by way of Mexico. He has been an exhibiting artist since 1984 and has receive a dozen grants, fellowships and residencies. His solo show include: The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (Harvard University); El Museo Nacional de Culturas Populares in Mexico City among others
