Project Description

“ Audrey Welch has refined her painting to be no more or less than the tracks of her journey from blank canvas to overlays of colour and line; within that narrow space she creates universes.”

Tony Apesos, MFA Faculty, Art Institute of Boston

“the paintings of American-born Audrey Welch, who has lived on the far side of the Pacific for many years, exemplify a kind of contemporary international-style abstraction . . .The sophistication of Welch’s work appears to derive equally from studio practice, life experience and observation of other contemporaries’ works.”

Kenneth Baker, Art Critic, San Francisco Chronicle
