The Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased to announce an important exhibition of a new work by Dan Walsh. The exhibition will include paintings and a series of specially produced books and will be on view from March 28 through April 25, 1998.
Dan Walsh has created a body of work–paintings on canvas and works on paper that rely on and subtly subvert the vocabulary of abstract art. These works consist primarily of hand-drawn grids and bisecting lines among which are placed geometric forms that are somewhat historically familiar and yet clearly perceptual.
The exhibition will include approximately one dozen paintings in various scales and consisting of lines and forms in a wider variety of colors than in Walsh’s previous works. Also on view will be thirteen books. Each of these books have approximately twenty unique drawings to scale of Walsh’s existing paintings situated within varying printed architectural schemes. The books function as catalogues of the artist’s works and will be installed with different pages displayed within a large vitrine in the front gallery.
This exhibition will be Walsh’s second one-person show at the Paula Cooper Gallery. He presently lives and works in New York.
