Ciarán Walsh’s work engages with themes of loss, precariousness, transformation, and place. In an ongoing exploration that draws from popular culture, folk traditions, and Romanticism, he examines archetypes and allegory in representations of both the supernatural and the natural world.

His work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions internationally, including at the Irish Musuem of Modern Art (Dublin), Kunsthalle Bratislava (Slovakia), Ujazdowski Castle CCA (Warsaw) and Light & Wire Gallery (Los Angeles), among others. His artist's novels are held in the permanent 'Book Lovers’ collection at MuHKA (Antwerp). Walsh has also curated a number of public commissions and art projects in Ireland, the UK and Germany.
