The book includes essays by the prominent art academics and gallerist, Professor Sasha Grishin AM, FAHA,; Dr Patrick Hutchings and Guy Abrahams 'Thornton Walker is an artist who is a teller of stories without a narrative. He is a staunchly figurative artist, but one who paints highly abstracted images. He is also a philosopher who meditates on the nature of the whole world, but does this by examining in exceptional detail a small fragment in a painting, contemplating a haiku or rediscovering part of an old photograph which has been stripped of its original context...The best paintings by Thornton Walker are very much about "the spiritual rhythm...which pervades heaven and earth.' From the essay by Professor Sasha Grishin AM, FAHA included in the book. Professor Grishin is the author of the recent title: Australian Art, A History
