Artist's Statement

Anchored in painting, Paul’s work is strongly influenced by the narratives of daily life. He is fascinated by human interaction and how these interactions, combined with the notions of human identity, community and nonconformity, contribute to the evolution of society. Paul’s paintings are an investigation of curious, often overlooked social circumstances, utilized as an attempt to gain a more personal understanding of the human experience. The use of humor, bold colors, and quirky imagery softens the work, allowing an easier visual approach to difficult subjects.

Paul’s current work investigates where his own disposition resides, within the spheres of conformity and non-conformity; as we enter an unparalleled time of divisiveness and personal expression.
