  • Dan Walsh: Uncommon Ground

    Contemporary Art

    June 8 –October 21, 2012

  • Dan Walsh’s large-scale abstract paintings extend the basic language of Minimalism’s geometric shapes and grid compositions. But rather than creating hard-edge forms, Walsh draws lines by hand and applies luminous color with soft brushes, always allowing for subtle inflections of light and color. These canvases are logical but not too logical. Patterns repeat but forms may hover at the bottom of the field and other unanticipated irregularities give a personal dimension to the work. In addition to a group of new paintings, the exhibition will include a large canvas from ca. 2000 as well as a selection of limited edition books designed by the artist.
