GEN PAUL
Enfants

About

Writing of Gen-Paul, Raymond Nacenta says he was “an artist of vigorous originality, his landscapes, portraits, and race track scenes reflect a forceful dynamic temperament.”¹ From early in his life Gen-Paul’s painting showed an exceptionally strong and vibrant Expressionist style which he continued to use throughout most of his life. Expressionist artists made no attempt to present objective reality, but, rather, to express personal emotions and responses which persons and places aroused in them. Gen-Paul followed a subjective, very personal and spontaneous pathway of self-expression. Each of his works shows how he has strongly imposed his own sensibility on reality, calling it the accurate representation of its real meaning. This is accomplished through distrortion and exaggeration which often is jarring and vivid. While this is true of all Expressionist painters, each, however, reveals something about his or her outlook on the world. Some techniques clearly are similar. Some artists present a dark or pessimistic view of life. Gen-Paul, on the contrary, was concerned with affirming life and refreshed or renewed what he saw of the world in his art.
