Paul Kingsley Squire artist 2020
Paul Kingsley Squire is an oil painter whose oeuvre includes, otherworldly abstracted landscapes and surreal figurative works imbued with symbolism.
He is fascinated by themes of metamorphosis and transformation, working in series to create a range of different works.

Across each medium, his artistic style retains a consistent ethereal quality, and boasts polish and thoughtfulness that allows ideas of psychology, nature and consciousness to be pondered by each viewer.
As well as painting, he has created series of intricate drawings and works hand drawn with a digital pen & tablet and has written, recorded and produced several albums of contemporary electronica under the pseudonym "Kinetic Alchemy'.

 His original oil paintings, pencil drawings and prints are collected internationally.
"I am expressing an inner state of being, a yearning for other worlds and realities, driven by an exploratory drive. It is through this innate curiosity that I have developed several methods and techniques for creating artwork in highly individualistic styles.

Themes that intrigue and fascinate me, include metamorphosis, transformation, esotericism and mythology, and how these subjects are relevant to contemporary life.

In recent years my work has developed into distinct series of otherworldly abstracted landscapes, abstracted figurative works, and surreal figurative oil paintings.

My work is full of symbolism and I prefer the viewer to be drawn into deciphering the imagery, coming to their own conclusions."
