All sixes and primes - 2016

All sixes and primes - mix media on canvas - 2016

Paul Ashwell produces bold and striking abstract paintings and prints. Inspired by repeated journeys, geology, music and numbers, his background as a skilled printmaker also influences his work. 

Much of his work is created by superimposing layers – using plaster, tissue, newsprint and paint to bring out or obscure previous layers. He often uses gloss and matt to give different appearances in different light and from different angles.

Paul's facination with number and pattern is a reoccuring theme. His Prime Marks is a good example of this.
