Statement

A moment starts the flow.  A mark, leads to a color, which leads to a space.  A line leads to another line, which forms plane that may cover a space.  The spaces combine, through tool and media, and a new vista is created.  The combinations are limitless, though the growth follows a logic and rhythm.  The result carries visual threads that lead our eye from one moment in time to the next.  What similarities are born in a minute, day or week of progress? 

 

With an education in Bauhaus architecture and fine art, Paul Lorenz has carved a unique niche in the international art world: bridging the principals and immediacy of painting and drawing with the logic and detail of architecture.  The final image is a balance of physical structure and visual manipulation.  This balance, explored through numerous media, always allows the process to be the final subject.

 

Abstraction is not a style, but a state of mind…a way of thinking about action, time and circumstance, confidence and risk-taking, boldness and subtlety, perception and reality.
