Looking down onto one of New York’s busy urban streets, this piece offers a unique view of this incredible city. Paul has used a palette knife to layer down defined linear marks, accentuating the angular features of the mighty skyscrapers and creating a strong sense of direction and perspective.
These distinct paint marks against gleaming areas of sublime aluminium give the painting a surface full of texture and movement. Light bounces off the exposed aluminium on the buildings, emphasising the dramatic shadows cast on a bright day in New York City.
You might also enjoy these other New York paintings from Paul's 365 Project. This was a year-long journey exploring a different range of mediums & working at sizes often smaller, than with his studio pieces. In many cases these formed the studies behind the larger studio works.
