Download CV

Dan Walsh creates his minimalist work with small, discrete brushstrokes and a varying intensity of paint application. Walsh describes himself as a maximalist whose work is based on a minimalist paradigm to achieve a maximal visual impact. The starting point for his work are strictly defined grids, which he expands into complex systems with a reduced formal vocabulary. Walsh experiments with simple geometric elements, which he multiplies and combines to form linear yet irregular patterns and rhythms. These circles and lines seem perfectly formed and only reveal the artist’s free, layered brushwork on closer inspection. Walsh’s work gains additional complexity from the nuanced transparency of successive layers of paint.

Beer with a Painter: Dan Walsh

Jennifer Samet

10 October 2020

“Twenty years ago, you wouldn’t be caught dead being called a colorist.”
I met Dan Walsh on the North Fork of Eastern Long Island, where he now lives and works. His studio is housed in a complex of single-story spaces designed more for commercial than creative production — and it is not as integrated with the outdoors as the location might suggest.

Zuoz — «Ich nenne mich Maximalist, denn ich versuche, das Maximum aus dem Minimalen herauszuholen», meinte Dan Walsh gegenüber der New Yorker Literaturzeitung ‹The Paris Review›. Diese Einschätzung scheint etwas untertrieben, aber Understatement gehört wahrscheinlich zu den Grundtugenden des US-amerikanischen Malers.
