Artist Statement

Paul P. is a noted Canadian figurative painter. His work explores topics including identity, beauty, gender, and history. His early work was drawn from 70s pre-AIDS era gay pornography and his current work is done in the studio from the artist’s photographs. His detachment from the original location while producing the work invokes a sensual longing for what is not captured in the photo. The nuances of light are his primary concern and his work is usually informed by history.
