Paul tries to blur the edge between realism and abstraction. Always search-ing for the point where a single brush stroke confuses the image, rendering it unidentifiable.
Deconstructions attack the concept from a different direction. Rather than starting with figure and form, Paul starts with color and marks.
The same image, usually done from a real-life sketch in near darkness, is re-peated multiple times. Each iteration reveals pieces of the original sketch, hopefully pulling the image closer to a recognizable state.
