Shane Walsh

Shane Walsh’s paintings are the result of his involvement with collage, both in a literal sense and as a conceptual framework for understanding the legacy of abstraction. His process begins with small-scale collages constructed from photocopies of various shapes and marks - some expressive, others graphic or digital - which respond to the history of abstract painting. This approach treats the history of abstraction as a storehouse of moments from which to copy, paste, and sample. This cutting, copying, and pasting, however, owes as much to the punk and hip-hop posters of the artist’s youth as it does to modernist traditions. Walsh lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and has exhibited his work throughout the U.S. He holds an MFA from the University of Washington Seattle and currently teaches painting and drawing at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
