Introducing Mr Paul David Chisholm
” Fusing irony with allegory, Paul Chisholm creates works layered with allusions to his personal history and emotional state, subtly criticizing social and political circumstances. Utilizing his own experience as a springboard, he has built a distinctive visual language, imbued with poetic nuances of the often contradictory and disconcerting feelings related to the human condition.”
ANA BAMBIC KOSTOV Art Historian / critic / Writer
“From the personal to the political, from the emotional to the critical, the irony and the magic of existence all come to play in my practice. From making the invisible visible to the poetics and unique resonance of materials, text plays a heavy part in the Artists communication of an often contradictory and disconcerting feelings of the human experience. “
