About The Artwork

New paintings commissioned by Opera Holland Park, for their 2013 seasonal productions. http://www.operahollandpark.com/ Les pecheurs de perles Leila the veiled priestess is in my depiction to be unveiled by Nadir and herself as it is Nadir who has pursued his love for the veiled woman and subsequently brought him to these shores where at long last finds Leila. There are three oyster shells with pearls that drape Nadir representing the three characters. The painting is an expression of love in its truest sense.

At its heart, Walsh's art celebrates the traditional values of the representational, yet is infused throughout with a thoroughly contemporary sensibility. It is this tension, between the archaic and the modern, the real and the imagined, that imbues his paintings with their uncommon, ethereal mystery. Typical of his classically informed work are his series of pieces inspired by working with the Holland Park Opera. Using as models members of his friends and family, Walsh creates an intertextual space where the grandeur and opulence of the dramatic form collides with the familiarity of the everyday, helping us to see the conflict of the personal at the heart of the theatrical tableaux. London Art Blog has described Walsh's recent work as "˜beguiling' and "˜beautiful', with "˜a masterful feel for portraiture, expressions, gestures, poise and pose of the human physiology'. Walsh, a graduate of London's esteemed Royal College of Art, has had extensive exhibitions internationally with several solo shows at galleries including 101 Exhibit - Miami, I-nkd Gallery-Brighton, Signal Gallery-London and the James Freeman Gallery -London. He's also exhibited in prestigious events such as the MTV European awards, G-40 summit - Washington (featured artist) and the Foundation for the care of victims of torture, Exhibiting alongside established names such as Bridget Riley, Ralph Steadman and Paula Rego. His Paintings are in Private collections with the Standard Chattered Bank Tokyo and London. For four consecutive years, Walsh has been selected by the critically acclaimed, Holland Park Opera as their in-house Artist. Walsh has again been given the commission for the 2013 seasonal productions. Resulting for Walsh in a firm collaborative exchange with one of the UKs finest and internationally acclaimed Opera Company's.
