In Mushroom Season

70 x 100cm oils on gold leaf on canvas






Patrick Walshe is an Irish artist who lives in the Wicklow hills, south of Dublin. In the course of a long career he has lived and worked in Dublin, New York and Los Angeles and has also had exhibitions in places as diverse as Chicago and Abu Dhabi. He mainly paints in oils on a silver leaf ground which brings an extra layer of light, transparency and parallax. His style varies from a celebration of light, colour and realism in the countryside around his studio, to a much more abstract and emotional response to the same forests, lakes, mountain trails and valleys. Weather and light, wind, rain, dawn sunlight, the colour of the seasons are all joyful to the soul. I am delighted to welcome you to this website catalog which covers many years of visual explorations.
