David Paulson
Dutch Boy (Contemporary Male Portrait influenced by New York School of Painters)

2004

About

18 x 14 inches, conti crayon on paper 27 x 24 x 1.5 inches framed, light gray mat signature in pencil in bottom right corner This is a gray-scale portrait of a male drafted in a style that evokes surrealist automatism. The artist's hand is visible - shapes, though identifiable, are borderline abstracted. Artist David Paulson's work recalls a darker, more pensive landscape of human emotion inspired by the New York School of painters. In a partly automatist style, recognizable content becomes abstracted through Paulson’s concentration of tonal contrast and strong brushwork. According to Paulson, the journey these forms take is more important than what they become. In the end, the expression becomes the reality. David Paulson attended the Swain School of Design and the Parson’s School of Design Graduate Program for Painting. He later instructed at both institutions. While at Parson's, Paulson studied with Leland Bell and Paul Resika, both of whom were strongly influenced by Hans Hoffman’s work. Paulson’s work was also strongly influenced by David L. Smith, who was a student of Hoffman’s in the 50’s. David Paulson was recently awarded the Purchase Prize for Painting at the National Academy of Arts and Letters in March, 2014.
