    Dan Walsh eludes categorization, straddling and even challenging several late twentieth century movements—minimalism, color field, and geometric abstraction. Through simple geometric form, Walsh creates an optical illusion of never-ending repetition and infinite expansion. His lines are mesmerizing in their electrical glow and perspectival deception. He handles paint and the canvas with such precision that the surface seems to simultaneously advance and recede, intimate yet infinite. His lines are all rendered by hand and only upon careful inspection do the imperfections appear, revealing his mission to create perfection despite the inherent imperfectability of mankind. Straight edges slightly bend with movement and lines quiver with subliminal vitality.
