Paul McCarthy

,

McCarthy’s plen-air vision of the bush is one of energised colour. Born in 1966 in Sydney. Paul has been painting for 25 years. His landscapes combine Fauvism, Impressionism and Contemporary Abstraction. His exquisite colour combinations give his paintings an exotic flair, through which he captures and finds a whole new and dramatic light unique to his environment. He has had numerous solo and joint exhibitions both here and overseas, including a joint exhibition in Soho New York in 2001. McCarthy has worked extensively as a community artist including working with a remote aboriginal community, high schools, and acting curator for the Sydney Children’s Hospital. He has also coordinated several groups of volunteers working with groups covering the Sydney Children’s Hospital, the Sydney Cancer Centre at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital as well as adults with disabilities at Studio Artes Hornsby. “I am a colourist at heart and my work reflects a response to my surroundings. My selection enables me to create vivid sequences of colour or subtle muted tones, as the need arises. Working plein air I am able to capture the full range of the vast diversity of the Australian landscape from coast to hinterland and outback.”
