Over the last number of years the work has transitioned from landscape painting that had a sense of magical realism, a joy in the beauty and majesty of nature... Today the work, which he insists is still in the landscape genre, is focused on colour form and emotional moments of response to internal and external wanderings.. There is a search, a sense of looking through to the heart of personal experience and interaction with the world..
Born in County Clare, in 1952, Irish painter Patrick Walshe 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 with his family.
"Because my work is painted on silver leaf there is a parallax effect. So I ask the viewer to become involved in the variables of light, their relative position to the painting and a quietness of observation that purely visual art requires. The paintings take on a substantially different appearance, translucency and subtlety of depth ,depending on the lit environment in which they are viewed. "
