JAN 5 – 10: PAUL WARD
Reception: January 9 6 - 9 PM
PAUL WARD is an Abstract Expressionist color field Painter. He employs a technique for naturally blending colors, by using gravity and an intuitive design sense that does not super-impose an intellectual statement but, rather, a free-flowing sensual aesthetic. His work emphasizes the use of color, in order to create composition and imagery that “takes on a life of its own on the canvas.” In nearly every painting, a textural focus evolves that is impossible to create with a brush.
