About this event

Pallas Projects/Studios presents Lee Welch—In Praise of Idleness, the second show of their 2024 Artist-Initiated Projects programme. This series of new paintings is Welch's first solo show in a decade, following a lauded exhibition at the Hugh Lane.

In Praise of Idleness invites viewers to explore the intersections of idleness, introspection, emotion and the complexities of the human condition. Welch's new body of work offers a compelling exploration of the significance of leisure in modern society.

Welch's evocative paintings capture moments of contemplation, offering viewers a glimpse into the innermost workings of the human psyche. Canvases serve as windows into the complexities of human experience, inviting viewers to reflect on the truths that bind us together.

With his eclectic influences, including literature, history, and tennis, Welch's work transcends traditional artistic boundaries, offering a fresh perspective on timeless themes of beauty, desire, and the passage of time.
