For the past six decades, John Loker has produced rigorously conceived, meticulously produced and visually mesmerising works of art across many different media. Known as a photographer, sculptor, assemblage-collagist and above all painter, he is one of modern Britain’s most original, free-thinking and category-defying artists. Author Ben Lewis traces the development of Loker’s unusual artistic journey, beginning at Bradford College alongside fellow students David Hockney, Peter Kaye, David Oxtoby, Norman Stevens and Michael Vaughn, followed by his education at the Royal College of Art, London, in the 1960s and subsequent rise to international attention in the 1970s. Interspersed with conversations and correspondence with Loker’s colleagues and collaborators, Horizons, Zones and Outer Spaces brings together more than xxx images from the 1950s to the present day, journeying through the landscape of Britain, Eastern Europe and Australia, to end with his most recent focus on space, and the horizon of our planet.
