My artistic motto is: Create and Observe. If art is directed towards people, everything we create is a form of contact.

My artwork brings out both the beauty of nature and the individual character of each creature it hosts. Just as we humans are unique so are the animals I paint.

Photography captures the moment, framing and telling a story and invoking an emotion is the art. The love of action, emotion and effort and human and nature.

My work is quite diverse and generally leans towards abstraction.

Often inspiration is drawn from things that evoke a powerful visceral response - the ground beneath our feet and the sea.

I like to experiment with style, media, colour and scale, and sometimes even let the paint dictate the subject matter. This often results in some surprises. Digital media is also something I enjoy, and I’m hoping to have prints of some of my digital works available for my open studio weekends.

I have been painting, drawing and creating art ever since I can remember - I was the child who wanted sable brushes and turpentine for Xmas, when all my friends asked for a Cindy Horse! I grew up in North Yorkshire, and attended Harrogate College Of Arts, during which time I worked in theatre as a scene-painter, before starting a career as a stage manager. I have been working in live events production since 1993.

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is primarily but not exclusively concerned with what lies beneath us - the subterranean layers of every moment in time, now obscured in abstract strata and passages of sea which hold mystery, comfort, primal power, sustenance, energy, dreadfulness, awe, the fantastic, the macabre. Liminality, where the passage of time perpetually forms everything that ever existed into the intermingling of rock, water, precious minerals, gases, and, inevitably, where all life ends up. I seek to explore concepts of underground caverns and waterfalls, oceans, great cathedrals of secrecy, stable, fragmented and volatile abstractions formed by the incessant pressure of time. This is where history dwells, in a world we cannot see or touch, but we know exists beneath our feet.

My impressionist images interpret light and colours, shapes and patterns in both landscapes and details, around the English coast, in Cambridge and locally, even in my garden.

My favourite painting technique is watercolours. I like this media because of the transparency and luminosity I can achieve with them.

Classic style rarely shows up in my pieces because I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate reality. Painting techniques I could not live without is watercolours and acrylics.

My work is based on experimentation with materials such as inks, charcoal, marker pens and gouache. There’s an element of play, chance and unknown in this process. Most of the works are created on paper with pen and ink.

I was born and raised in India. Every year I create a series of work related to my roots. These arise on my annual visits.  My inspiration is the intense colours, architecture and sarees worn as traditional attire. One of these works is currently on display at city gallery, as part of Vivacity Open 2019.

I consider myself a doodler, hence the name madoodl.

Although PAOS for 2020 has been postponed Paul's work can still be seen and purchased if desired on https://www.artintheheart.co.uk/store/paul-saunders-photography/. Highlight the web address and right click and follow the link.

Paul, a Peterborough based photographer, produces traditional, art photography and photo restorations. His  speciality is Art Photography and photo restoration. He has become known for his Edwardian actress restorations. A number of restorations for private clients have  been commissioned and completed to their delight . The restoration process can be either a straight forward tidy up of small marks or corrections. For instance from, say sepia toning back to black and white or vice versa. A tidy up or tinting, removing backgrounds, people, and adding new images of people or new backgrounds.

Art photography is his main interest at the moment. As he completes each image, his enthusiasm for probing further in this direction increases. Many people may think that photography is a poor relation to 'proper' art but Paul states, 'many hours over several weeks' can be spent setting up a photo, and there can be no certainty of a successful outcome, there are many failures, but Paul says there is a great feeling of satisfaction when an idea come to fruition..

Paul says that working with glass is especially difficult. However much it is cleaned before the image is taken it seems to attract any passing  dust. Working with glass and backgrounds with straight lines can also be a challenge. You will see the finished article in his exhibition but what you won't see are the hours  spent getting everything as perfect as  possible. Paul's restoration experience comes in very useful during the post processing of the image.

During the PAOS period Paul will be happy to assess photographs for restoration, but at this years venue will not be able to do demonstrations, however there will be before and after restoration photographs available to view. Commissions accepted for photo restorations.

 

Paul also has work displayed on,

[caption id="attachment_6289" align="aligncenter" width="562"] Mixed Media (Commissioned by The ADHD Foundation, Liverpool)[/caption]

A mixture of new locally inspired pieces alongside my recent award winning work celebrating the gifts/talents  of the ADHD community.  Varied and purposefully random as ever.  My artwork is for sale via my website www.heartwork.co.uk and https://www.artintheheart.co.uk/marketplace/

My featured artwork 'Reigning ADHD' was commissioned by the national charity, The ADHD Foundation.   Limited edition prints are still available (25% proceeds going to the charity).   The artwork was inspired by the 'Umbrella Project' which is an installation created annually in Liverpool (and now Manchester also) to raise awareness surrounding neurodiversity.  I was  over the moon to have won the charity's  2018 national 'Artist' award.

I am very passionate about the cause behind the ADHD charities as I was diagnosed myself with ADHD in 2009 whilst employed as an Art Teacher.  My life has improved significantly since my diagnosis and I rely on my creativity heavily as one of the strategies to keep my ADHD 'symptoms' at bay.   I was one of the first adults in the UK to be diagnosed with the condition and my work has become entwined with reducing the stereotypes and stigma surrounding this most misunderstood of conditions.
