Clearly drawn to the linear qualities of scaffolding, wire, sticky tape, window frames and tree trunks Paul often finds frames within frames, verticals and horizontals and diagonals, incorporating blocks of colour or texture and the strong geometric shapes of triangles, circles and rectangles.
A recurring theme in his projects is documenting the process of modern-day physical change for example the renovation of an old building such as the William Morris Gallery or the transformation of a former factory site into a state-of-the-art school whose semi-complete state mirrors that of the old factory; one empty, and waiting to be demolished, the other, empty and waiting for completion.
PREVIEW EVENING Friday 5 May 7-9pm
Everyone’s invited to join us for a Meet The Artists evening, but please remember to dress for the weather as this is a largely outdoor event. Click this link for the gallery’s website wvwg.co.uk
The window gallery is a street-facing-only exhibition space that is visible 24 hours a day, and lit until approx. midnight every day. It is close to cafes, bars, shops and restaurants that offer any refreshment you might need.
Here’s a handy Google map showing the location of gallery.
