Shane Walsh makes paintings that reference digital and analog forms of representation (Photoshop, commercial printing) and combines these with the signs and symbols of 20th century abstraction.
Walsh aims to create something uncanny in his work by remixing these historical signs while calling attention to the way our experience of abstract painting is determined by a variety of media.
Walsh is a Lecturer in Painting and Drawing at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He received his BFA from MIAD and his MFA from the University of Washington in Seattle.
