“Producing art has always been a loving process. Like a scientist in a laboratory, I painted with a purpose to grow, delve into my mind and experiment with my medium.” Raised in Wyoming, Polson was inspired by the beautiful geological world around him. The “Strata” paintings have been an ongoing and developing series throughout his art career. They can be described as stacked histories, geological cross sections or alternate dimensions. He wants us to see and feel the layers of history within the landscape. He creates a geological perspective, like a core sample, seeing the strata of human existence over time. Polson is accomplished on many levels. He paints traditional landscape as well as his interpretations of the landscape. Paul’s painting style often employs a “staccato rhythm” to his brushstroke with thick and thin application of paint for a tactile feel.
Polson was exhibited at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, the Bistro, Winter 2017-2018.
