Living and seeing is both Paul’s job and his art. Painting each day confronts him with the opportunity to get it right. It’s a shifting ground until the qualities of colour and form arrive at a point of stillness, and the dictates of the painting are moved through to make a finished statement - everything considered, like a jigsaw puzzle.
