Gallery 1

Walsh’s emotionally driven and beautifully sensitive paintings resonate with pathos, as scenes of human connection are rendered in bleeding washes of fleeting fragility. Delicately delineated in ink, watercolour and oil, these deeply psychological portraits and groups convey the subtle dynamics of body language and facial expression.

Evoking memories of the past, these odes to humanity are delivered with a poignant tenderness that induces a mixed sense of anxiety, sentimentality and introspection. Colour is used to heighten the expressive potential of these works as the conscious and unconscious mind is explored in all its fallibility.
