Paul wrights work really experiments with a wide range of colour, colours that maybe you wouldn’t ever thing of using when painting skins but i think the use to colour really captures the tones and lighting of the portraits he paints, as well as his still life paintings, bring the most mundane objects to life!
i was actually surprise to find out that is painting are not actually as big as i though they would be especially for the medium he uses, he said he prefers for work small so that he can really get up close to the object and likes to see it as a problem to solve and works around it.
At the start of his career he was unsure of what he actually want to do, and started off painting things that surrounded him before moving onto portrait and still life in which he found a talent in, but instead of just sticking to what he is good at, he has now moved on to applying the same skill of using colour to creat depth and tone to landscapes.
Paul wright also expressed the amount of commitment to his work, he thinks of his work more like religion, living and breathing his work, and i think it really does show though in the way he talks about his pieces and every painting as a story or memory behind it and a piece of his life.
i really liked his painting of still life subjects for example the sofa and paint overalls, the way his brings so much life to the object and something that is dead is brought to life and is viewed in a whole new way!
