Work by Paul Guthrie

Paul Guthrie [Biography]


Peacock - Confetti IV

Original Acrylic Painting

Paul Guthrie

Paul did not find out that he is an artist until 2010, aged 37.

The astonished response of his friends set him on a trajectory which is now unstoppable. The only way Paul can express it is to say that he can’t avoid painting. And since that moment, Paul’s work has attracted considerable praise and sold widely.

His drive is to convey in his work the nature of a living subject - its essential character. If a sheep looks to Paul “like a fleece stuffed with old farm implements’ then that is what he must represent.

He uses eye and camera to capture the personality of what he sees, and then works with bright, vibrant colours to convey that personality in as truthful a way as he can. The colours are often unexpected. His way of working conveys the reality of a subject
more fully than any factual or naturalistic representation can.

Paul aims for a strong response to his paintings. “My hope,” he says, “is that the viewer takes something new from a painting every time they see it.”
