Paul Rowntree studied painting at St Martin’s School of Art in London, England. He has worked in Montreal, New York’s Hudson Valley as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer for over 30 years. His work has been used by many large corporations such as IBM, Whirlpool and Volkswagen.
Paul has recently returned to painting using as his subjects the landscapes and vegetation of the Hudson Valley, Texas, Florida and Ohio.
“I am interested in the traditional skills of painting and drawing but I try to see my subject with a non-traditional eye. Lately I have become more focused on the intimate details of a landscape. What interest me is the reality of a small section of the landscape – the hidden world revealed. I use paint to explore the moments between realism and illusion.”
Paul showed his work for the first time in Texas in 2006. He continues to explore the imagery and mystery of close-up observation of fragments of the landscape. His work has been exhibited twice at The Salmagundi Club in New York and in galleries throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island, Texas and Ohio. He currently maintains a home in Columbus, Ohio.
