Nathan Walsh creates awesome urban landscpaes of both interior and exterior space out of oil on linen.

“I am fascinated by the city, it’s visual complexity and constant state of flux. The act of painting is an attempt fix this information and give vision to our experience of living within it…

By using simple mathematical ratios I can begin to describe concrete form within my picture plane. Over a period of time I will draw and redraw buildings, manipulating their height, width or nature in relation to other pictorial elements. By introducing spatial recession to these elements I aim to present a world the viewer can enter into and move around. Some of the more recent works deal with layers of information, whether this be the description of reflective surfaces or the combination of inside and outside spaces. This I believe offers great potential for re-preseting reality, sandwiching what’s in front of and and behind the viewer together.”
