In recent years his work has transitioned from landscapes that had a sense of magical realism towards a more abstract visceral response to the countryside.Today the work still speaks the language of landscape, but has become focused on colour, form and emotional moments of response. Being in the moment is an intrinsic part of his expression. There is a search here, a sense of looking through to the heart of personal experience and man's interaction with the world..This is suggestive abstraction allowing the viewer license to develop their own discourse with the paintings.
Irish artist Patrick Walshe was born in County Clare, in 1952. He left Ireland to develop his art in New York and Los Angeles in the 1980's and 90's where he exhibited widely. Returning to Ireland via Africa and Asia, he now lives and paints in the Wicklow mountains near Glendalough.
