Catalogue Note

In the 'Enignum' series of work, Joseph Walsh has stripped wood into thin layers, manipulating and reconstructing them into free form compositions. He then shapes through these layers to reveal not only the honesty of the structure but the sculpted form which is a unique collaboration of man and material. The title derives from the Latin words Enigma ('mystery') and Lignum ('wood'), for me they sum up the series: the mystery of the composition lies in the material.
