New Paintings by Paul Havas
Closes: April 3rd, 2009
"At the beginning of a painting I have but a general image in mind. The painting process is full of beckoning choices.
They appear in the incidental stains and marks of the brush and are ever at play with and re-define the objective.
I regard this to and fro as finding the form to release the sense, it leads to inevitable changes of shape, scale, color, edge, and other elements of structure.
They are hypothetical digressions hidden under layers of paint. Some paintings grow out of previous paintings.
They become variations on a theme and that may sustain over years. I may work on several themes at a time."
-- Paul Havas
