Stamford, CT – December 2012 – The Loft Artists Gallery presents “ANOTHER VIEW”, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Greenwich artist, Paul G. Larson.
This collection of fifteen recent paintings features subject matter ranging from solitary and multiple figures in stylized settings, to completely free-flowing abstract landscapes of the mind. Larson’s style is best described as expressionist with a decidedly cubist twist. The large compositions are based upon the use of complex geometric forms, and the illusion of overlapping and intersecting planes, improbable perspectives, and highly contrasting yet subtle transitions of tonal passages that invariably tease the viewer’s eye.
“A work of art is a window into the artist’s mind, and every image is a glimpse into the world he inhabits” Larson says. “My paintings are abstractions of my own perceptions. My intent is to explore the mystery of perceived realities, and to report what I find to others.” Larson describes his work as “a process of finding what has been lost, or bringing what is obscure to awareness.
Further elaborating upon the work, Larson states “Although the images may be unique, I hope that others may find something familiar to their world as well. Something that might provide an insight, evoke a distant memory, or awaken an emotion somehow familiar, and perhaps long unfelt.”
“I make art to bear witness to the things I know, and as a means of searching for what may be. I seek original ways to help in my own discovery of what is real, and to represent for the first time another view of the world.” Visitors to this powerful exhibition of paintings will not leave unsatisfied.
A lifelong artist and the recipient of numerous awards for his work in oil, acrylic, and pastel, Larson has participated in many exhibitions and his work resides in private collections both national and international. A member of the Greenwich Art Society, the Loft Artists Association in Stamford, and Artplace Gallery in Fairfield, he currently maintains a studio at 845 Canal St. in Stamford, CT.
The Loft Artists Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to building connections within Fairfield County’s visual arts community and exposing the general public to artists and their work. Their grassroots events attract thousands of visitors throughout the tri-state area and have been recognized by funding agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, corporate and private sponsors, the City of Stamford and by visitors who return year after year.
