Dan Walsh  (American, 1960) 

Dan Walsh (American, b.1960) is Minimalist painter known for coupling linear, geometric lines with irregularly drawn shapes. A native of Pennsylvania, Walsh studied at the Philadelphia College of Art, and later attended Hunter College in New York City. Created by hand, his compositions follow in the tradition of Ad Reinhardt (American, 1913–1967) and Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007). But Walsh’s works also go beyond the “objective purity” of Minimalism to incorporate references to virtual reality, as well as computer and television screens, acting as a commentary on contemporary life.

His work has been exhibited in national and international institutions, including the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, NY; P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City, NY; the Centre national d’art contemporain in Nice, France; la Synagogue de Delme, France; CCNOA (Art + Architecture) in Brussels, Belgium; and the Kunstverein Medienturm, Graz; Germany. His prints and limited-edition books were featured in a solo exhibition at the Cabinet des Estampes du Musée d’Art et d’histoire, in Geneva, Switzerland. He was also included in the Ljubljiana Biennial in Slovenia, the Lyon Biennial of Contemporary Art in France, and the 2014 Whitney Biennial.
