Paul Walsh | Mellifluous Arcana | April 2018
Paul Walsh is a Leeds based visual artist currently engaged in the postgraduate study of Performance Design at The School of Performance and Cultural Industries; University of Leeds. In April he will be presenting an exhibition of painted work, film and performance at BasementArtsProject.
‘Mellifluous Arcana’ is an exhibition of artworks that are revealing of the processes behind their creation. Focussing on surface and texture, these artefacts are the result of continuous investigation into capturing movement as a means of production. For Walsh, his immersion in Daoism and the philosophical and meditative aspects of the martial arts have led him towards a form of Japanese physical theatre and performance known as Bunraku. The metaphysical energy of these disciplines are all tools used by Walsh to create work with a sense of balance and harmony.
This exhibition marks a shift in the artist’s practice towards performance and a multidisciplinary approach to expression.
