Vibrant neon paint is dripped, poured and scraped over metal, reflecting a sense of the restlessness of the 1980s
Chase Contemporary Gallery. Opening reception Thursday 7th March, 6-8pm
Paul Kenton is a UK-based contemporary artist, acclaimed for his cityscape paintings which capture the unique energy of cities across the world. Paul’s paintings aim to transport the viewer, giving them a sense of the distinctive mood, pace and light of a scene, through layers of bold colour, dripped lines and gestural paint marks. His intuitive and energetic painting approach gives fluidity and life to otherwise rigid urban structures.
Predominantly working on aluminium, Paul’s paintings transform as they reflect the surrounding light, much like the architectural forms within the cities he paints. Paul is constantly exploring new ideas for paintings in his sketchbook, drawing not only from cityscapes, but also from his fascination with motorsport, the sea and pop culture. Paul currently exhibits his work in various galleries across the UK, and has recently exhibited in New York.
