Brian Whelan’s bold, large-scale paintings have an immense physical presence. They’re loaded with imagery and design, densely configured into a rich pattern of considerable complexityVictoria Donohoe, art critic, Philadelphia Inquirer
As a son of immigrants, I am no stranger to a new culture. Spending time in the US with my American wife has given me another address but the drive of my work remains the same: a search for a spiritual and metaphorical home, which finds some consolation in the subjects I choose to paint. These themes are often narratives drawn from life’s comic tragedies, on both secular and religious planes.
