In this talk, artist Samuel Walsh and invited speaker Robert O’Byrne will discuss Walsh’s current exhibition at RHA, The Odyssey. The discussion will also consider previous work by Walsh, how the many themes in both technique and object matter have come about, and how aspects of these have provided impetus to move to the next theme.
