The evolution of Walsh's works, from the early 1990s to the present, has led him to abandon the concept of the "ideal" in abstract painting, which in the history of art is always somehow connected with a "psychological condition", in an attempt to give greater "weight" and "gravity" to his paintings, making them become less and less "transcendent" and more corporeal. paolocurti.com
Born in 1960 in Philadelphia, Dan Walsh studied at Philadelphia College of Art and Hunter College in New York. He lives and works in New York.
The exhibition features five large colored acrylics, almost monochromes in which the recurring use of a sort of alphabet composed of simple geometric figures like squares, rectangles and lines creates abstract, minimal compositions that establish a dialogue with one another.findarticles.com
