" For me art and music have always served as a form of escape, towards a freedom of sorts. I am expressing an inner state of being, a yearning for other worlds and realities, whether through painting, digital art, drawing or music composition and I am led by an exploratory drive to just see what happens if I do this or that..."
London based artist Paul Kingsley Squire...
...creates paintings, drawings and digital art, building a diverse portfolio including ethereal abstract landscapes, anthropomorphic animals, and figures inspired by metamorphosis and transformation .
...the abstract landscape paintings use thick layers of oil paint to create textures and depth. Paul is interested in how the medium of oil paint can be used to create effects and suggest forms within the painting itself.
These landscapes generate an otherworldly yet naturalistic image, leaving the subject open to interpretation. The intention is to create paintings using experimental techniques, producing work that is abstracted and expressionistic.
...is an ongoing portfolio of pencil drawings and paintings exploring the interlinking relationship between natural landscapes and the human, combining detailed drawings of woods and trees within outlines of (mainly) female forms.
