“I don’t want to be interesting, I want to be good.”

I believe paintings are objects which tell their own stories. Yet, it is important to me that viewers see my pictures in whatever way they find most useful. That said, here are a few things I can say about my work and my process.

 

My pictures often include buildings, figures, birds, dramatic skies, objects, etc. I have a strong sensitivity for pictures that feel as if they’re setting a scene. I often depict scenes of home/place, time, perseverance, history, architecture, disillusionment, environment…the list goes on. However, representing a specific scene is not necessarily an important factor. My pictures bear calm and meditative moods and depict an academic sense of composition and substance.

 

I emphasize simple shapes in my compositions and paint with muted colors from an intentionally limited palette. Quality of mark making is a particular interest, and I spend a lot of energy getting the surface of the painting exactly right. I feel this is important, because a primary interaction of the work is the viewer’s encounter with the painting as a physical object. I apply paint to the surface, using rags, knives, my hands, brushes, brush handles, newspaper, sandpaper, anything that works.

Ted Walsh exhibits paintings throughout the United States and his work is in both public and private collections around the world.

 

Walsh’s paintings highlight elements of place, memory, the environment and history. His style toes the unique line where deep connection to the American realist tradition meets modern influences, as felt in contemporary painting.

 

Walsh was awarded two Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grants as well as First Prize in Painting at Art of The State at The State Museum of Pennsylvania. He has twice been the artist-in-residence at Gettysburg National Military Park, once at Rocky Neck Artist Colony and was selected as the inaugural artist-in-residence at First State National Historic Park. Walsh has been a professor, visiting artist speaker, critic and workshop artist at various colleges and art centers throughout the northeastern United States.

 

Walsh currently lives and works with his wife Kay in New Jersey.
