“Created in less than an hour, this large abstract piece using oil sticks was so much fun to do. Without any plan, I let the painting materialise organically, allowing my hand to do the thinking. I focused on enjoying the physical act of painting rather than being preoccupied with achieving a certain result - an approach akin to the 'action painting' of Jackson Pollock, one of my favourite artists. During the process, I found myself making sweeping gestural marks, resulting in a spontaneous combustion of colour and movement. As the oil stick became soft against the friction of the canvas, each mark began to clump together into a thick textured layer, creating a tactile surface, full of energy.”

Oil stick on canvas
This piece was painted onto a boxed canvas. This is where the canvas wraps around the edge to the full depth of an internal wooden frame. In most instances, the painting itself then continues around onto this return. Please contact us to confirm if this is the case with this piece, as well as to establish the depth of the canvas.
All measurements relating to framed sizes are approximate. Please contact us if the sizing information requires precise measurements.
"There's Nothing Abstract" is part of the following Collection(s):
Paul creates this striking collection of large-scale contemporary abstract paintings with bold gestural marks and vivid colour to achieve an illusion of depth, vigorous motion, and to ultimately express feeling. Painted on a monumental scale, the viewer can immerse themselves within the many intertwining layers of luscious paint, and feel the energy and rhythm of Paul’s painting process.
