The less information an artist offers, the more active the viewer’s mind becomes. With minimalism you have less information, and only a few elementary forms are left. I call myself a maximalist: I take the maximum out of the minimum.
Dan Walsh is an American artist who studied at the Philadelphia College of Art and Hunter College, New York. Walsh aligns his work with the minimalist movement, which he absorbed from Donald Judd. Nevertheless, Walsh seeks a vivid painting, which stimulates visual thought and poses an exchange with the viewer.
Walsh has exhibited at international museums and art centers such as the New Museum in New York, the MoMA PS1, Contemporary Art Center, Long Island, Centre National d’Art Contemporain in Nice, Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain in Geneva, the Indianapolis Museum, the Speerstra Foundation in Lausanne, the Kunstverein Medienturm in Graz or the Cabinet des Estampes in Geneva, where he has exhibited prints and limited edition books. His works are part of public collections such as the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain in Paris, the MoMA in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago or the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London.
