About

Acrylic on canvas - Unframed. Paul Behnke is an American abstract painter whose work prioritizes form. His images flow from a mixture of intuition, pop cultural influences, mystic thought, and what he describes as “a formal romantic modernism.” He lives and works in New York City. This artwork was produced during a period when Behnke was still thinking about the formal aspects that make up a traditional painting but something new was starting to happen. He began to allow symbols and more recognizable forms to nudge their way into the picture plane. For the most part he still painted out or disguised many of the more overt figurative elements. Even so, many of the forms began to take on a sort of undefined character or personality and began to edge toward ideas of the sculptural or monumental.
