Award winning Los Angeles Artist, Paul Paiment, will be coming to Brenau University to exhibit his contemporary multi-media and installation works Jan. 18th – March 14th, 2023 in Sellars Gallery at Simmons Visual Arts Center. He will also give an artist talk to the public during the opening reception discussing his concepts and studio processes.
Paul Paiement’s paintings attempt to reconcile the differences between inorganic, synthetic elements of culture with the organic elements of the natural world through the visual languages of linear/atmospheric perspective, representation/abstraction, and the use of layering.
Paiment chooses to paint landscapes that lack any specific identity or location. He uses atmospheric perspective to create a naturalistic scene that is vast and infinite. The airbrushed plexi-glass overlays are flattened architectural drawings and though flat, they are rendered using perspective techniques that create a geometric abstraction that contrasts with the detailed representation in the landscape.
Paiment is also known for his Hybrid Series of installations and ceramic works His series of “Hybrids” transforms everyday electronic gadgets to resemble various insect forms, classically rendering the insects in egg tempera.
Electronic overlays depicted by a series of dots created with wooden dowels, are a reference to the halftone screens of vintage ads and the digital pixels of modern photography.
