«As a homosexual I have been moved, educated, and inspired by works that deal with a heterosexual context. Why would I assume that a heterosexual would be incapable of appreciating work that speaks to common themes in life, as seen through my eyes as a gay man? If the heterosexual population is unable to do this, then the loss is theirs, not mine.»
The focus of his paintings often depicts sadness and loneliness to reflect the reality that much of anyone's life is sad and lonely.
«Any minority wants and needs to find artistic voices that reflect their own personal situations, and, in doing so, validate and record their lives and cultures for themselves and for the larger world.»
«My art is about love, hate, pain, joy, touch, communication, beauty, loneliness, attraction, hope, despair, life and death.»
In recent years Steve Walker's work has been exhibited in galleries in Toronto, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia and Key West.
In 2002 his work was exhibited at the First International Salon of Contemporary Artists, in Lisbon, Portugal.
