Diana Walsh approaches her painting practice as both a scientific and sociological exploration of visual culture. Challenging our understanding of visual ecology, and by using contemporary pigments and paint application practices, the painting surface questions culture’s expectations and understanding of visual experience. She employs painting’s capacity to freeze a single moment in time in order to ossify and exploit tensions discovered
in gaps between generations, technologies, and perceptions. Walsh received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, majoring in Painting and History of Art. She is Co-Founder of the Boston-based artist group, BIG6BEARCAT.
Currently, she is attending courses in Science and Mathematics at Harvard University in preparation for graduate studies, and is employed at a glass studio in Cambridge, MA. She works out of her own studio in Somerville, MA and resides in Boston.
