James Walsh: THE ELEMENTAL
January 9, 2020 @ 10:00 am - February 8, 2020 @ 6:00 pm
Berry Campbell is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent paintings by James Walsh (b. 1954). An abstract painter who has been an active member of the New York art scene since the early 1980s. Following in the Modernist tradition, Walsh relentlessly explores the properties and limits of paint and the results of his inquiry are spectacularly wide ranging. Experimenting with innovative acrylic formulas, Walsh produces large masses of pigment that project outward from the surface of the canvas, creating unusual forms in high relief. In some works, the paint is sculptural and three-dimensional, while in others, it rises from richly treated surfaces. Although Walsh makes specific compositional choices, the spontaneous appearance gives his paintings a feeling of the accidental. JAMES WALSH: THE ELEMENTAL opens with a reception on Thursday, January 9, 2020 from 6 to 8 pm and will continue through February 8, 2020.
