Shane Walsh makes paintings that borrow from historical abstraction and graphic imagery. Approaching painting as a form of collage, he playfully dissects then reconstructs visual languages to arrive at a form of abstract painting that is both autobiographical and historically aware. His omnivorous appetite for visual culture results in a wide array of references, quotations, techniques and materials that ultimately fuse into Frankenstein-like compositions, melded but never seamless. This cut and paste ethos is a direct result of his experience as a dj during the 1990's and his involvement with the subcultures of that era.
