New York city’s Asya Geisberg Gallery is getting ready to open Every Day is Friday, an exhibition of paintings by Shane Walsh. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Walsh’s paintings instantly seem like specters from the past; possibly configurations reminiscent of Frank Stella sculptures populated by Lichtenstein-esque brushstrokes. Within these works, the fabric of time unravels, and the past seeps in through a painted “collage” of hyperbolic gestures and reticulated squares atop airbrushed grounds. Walsh’s vibrant palette and cut-and-paste aesthetic lends itself to 80’s and 90’s pop-culture references such as MTV, Garbage Pail Kids and skateboard graphics.
