About the Artist
As a student of Goya and Velasquez, Wilcox revels
in the density of rich colors applying layers of oil
painting dynamic patterns. Shimmering seas vary from
the peaceful to the monumental imposing compositions of
unavoidable density of the paint upon canvas. The mysteries of landscapes
rest in pictorial substance that are familiar depictions fraught with symbolism.
Edward Walsh experiences vivid impressionism that
he translates in dense mediums manipulated in volume,
shape and line; suggesting both human & animal forms that
excite the imagination. A personal aesthetic that emerged from
childhood drawings reveal his passion for nature in a mature series
of Bas-reliefs offering meditative visitation of islands and woodlands
