The artwork of painter Zachary Walsh is firmly rooted in a portraiture tradition. His graceful paintings seem to have a classical sensibility as his subjects are faithfully rendered. However, Walsh also employs many contrasts which makes his work decidedly contemporary. His delicately worked oil paintings are adorned with cut out and collaged images. The smooth well worked brushstrokes are coupled with expressive painterly strokes and flowing dripping paint. Also, his subject matter mixes old and new, mythical and Biblical themes with modern scenes and people.
