paul_cristina framed shot of Study no.2 - charcoal, pen, collage on found paper, 11x22", 2017 -On view @beresford_studios through July 9- This is the piece that opened the doorway and influenced the rest of the series. For these studies, I was concerned about abandoning intellect. - Working in an abject manner on discarded and rubbish surfaces allowed me to approach the work with no inhibition. It facilitated the freedom of doing without thinking and without being concerned about the final results. I wanted to abandon the preciousness that we usually associate with our own work. - It's about trusting yourself...Trusting your intuition and capabilities as an artist without the burden of intellectualizing it. For small moments in time we can sometimes work without fear, doubt, anxiety and inhibition...it's a great place to be but can take a long time to get there. And being able to stay in that state is even more difficult.

paul_cristina I can't say enough how much I would like to thank everyone for the opening night. The genuine outpouring of emotional responses and conversations throughout​ the evening truly blew me away and I will be reflecting on that for some time to come. Many, many thanks to everyone that came together to make this happen. Never do I take any of this for granted. Pictured: Little Girl, charcoal & acrylic on paper mounted to canvas, 60x48" (she will be off to a new home) -snapshot taken by @bosttrain
