While Ralph Walker was stationed at a training camp at Kapooka, New South Wales, he experienced the tedium and boredom of service life. He expressed this when he created Fatigue: the lean, elongated figure with its contrapposto pose exudes weariness. The subjects of Walker’s drawings and sculptures during the war show his sensitivity to aspects of military life that were not always recorded.
