poster for Dan Walsh Exhibition

This event has ended.

The Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Dan Walsh.

Walsh will show paintings and works on paper in which he continues to explore “process generated images,” the artist’s method of creating images shaped by the process of their own making. Proposing a dialogue between the systematic and the open-ended, Walsh employs a defined set of rules to progress toward complex surfaces that activate the visual field. He layers deliberate strokes of paint, the logic of each informing and infiltrating the next. Walsh describes this as an additive methodology in which the result is unexpected: a build-up of marks and bursts of color constituting more than the sum of its parts.

His works, which The New York Times has described as “perceptually riveting,” playfully examine the very act of seeing. Interactions of unmodulated color produce grids and patterns that emerge and recede on the picture surface. The images shift between moments of recognition and fresh sensory material, engaging the process by which the visual system articulates information. The show also includes a series of rubbed gold drawings that constitute a meditation on geometric forms and evoke architectural diagrams or topographical maps.
