This exhibition of paintings covers a 9 year period in the artist’s life chronicling one tangent of her artwork. The paintings are works of faith who’s results rely heavily on the laws of nature. What Paula likes to call, “The God Factor” in her work. Planned structure, compositional shapes and color palettes meet the unknown to create an intricate and exciting visual feast that satisfies both macro and micro points of view. The convoluted micro detail in juxtaposition to the bolder macro shapes creates a dynamic energy that defines the work.
Each work is connected to its predecessors and owes its manifestation into the world because of them. It chronicles how one thing leads to another…and through that process the artist’s style develops and evolves.
Altered Perception showcases the subjects in this series of paintings by focusing in on some detail of the whole…the beauty as seen through the artists eyes are presented through abstract compositions to the viewer for consideration. The seemingly ordinary subjects gain eminence and the extrodinary subjects beauty is highlighted and enhanced through the focus being given.
Bold rich colors manipulated with delicate yet purposeful strokes are the painterly tools Paula uses to express her altered perception.
