Lazy Summer River
100 x 60cm oils on leaf on canvas
Patrick Walshe is an Irish artist who lives in rural County Wicklow, but in the course of a long career he has lived and exhibited 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 he says 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. He enjoys the freedom of expressing this widely differing response to nature.
I hope you enjoy this website catalogue which covers a fifteen year period of explorations and achievements.
