About Paul

Hybrids are a series of watercolor and egg tempera paintings based on psychological theories of visual perception. These pieces appear to be entomological studies of insects, but they actually explore perception’s effect on judgment. The paintings seek out the boundaries between what we believe to be factual and that which is fictitious.

My work addresses technology’s influence on society in two primary ways. I first consider the fusion of the organic and inorganic through the concept of cyborgs. Cyborgs are a hybrid of machine and organism created to enhance nature. Evidence of these sci-fi inventions exists in robotics, prosthetics, DNA testing, cloning, etc. Secondly, I choose to paint the subjects, rather than digitally render them to display distrust in our culture’s deification of technology.
