Biography
Dan Walsh (Philadelphia, 1960)

Lives and works in New York.

Dan Walsh's painting is characterised by the use of geometric sequences and vibrant tonalities that stem from a process of pictorial meditation dictated by codes created as a method for elaborating his paintings.

With brushstrokes in meticulous layers Dan Walsh creates large canvases shaped in series according to defined rules. With this complex and symmetrical system he explores the limits of abstraction

These canvases evoke textiles and  architectural ornaments with a basic structure reaching a very rich dimensionality and complex combinations. With his work, Dan Walsh, experiments with optics and the visual perception of the viewer.

Dan Walsh studied at Philadelphia College of Art and Hunter College in New York. He has exhibited at the New Museum in New York, the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island, the Centre National d´Art Contemporain in Nice, the Cabinet des Estampes in Geneva with its limited edition prints and books, the Speerstra Foundation in Lausanne and the Kunstverein Medienturm in Graz. He has participated in the Lyon Biennale of Contemporary Art in 2003 and the Whitney Biennale in 2014.

His works are part of public collections such as the Fonds National d´Art Contemporain in Paris, the MoMA in New York, the Art Institute in Chicago or the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
