Exiles in Eden

Dark Fairytales with a twist
Works from the "Exiles in Eden" series of oil paintings by Paul Kingsley Squire
Incorporating animal human hybrid creatures and surreal figurative apparitions, these oil on canvas works, symbolise Pauls interest in a wide range of Western and non-Western mystical and esoteric traditions.

This ongoing series started in the autumn of 2020, investigates magical and animistic faiths and how they are connected to nature, including the relationship between the human, plant and animal worlds.

Using a traditional painting method of underpainting and glazing, the compositions give a modern twist to what appear to be, on first inspection, dark fairy tales.
