I love these dusty, dusky, earthy colors and the shapes and patterns of the buildings in the cityscapes series of oil paintings from South African-born, New York-based artist Paul Balmer. Paul’s world travels and experiences living in Australia (where he studied art) have shaped his softly abstract yet representational style.

See a lot more intrigue on Paul’s website (love everything, esp his new monoprints!), and if you are in the Boston area, check his work out in person at the Arden Gallery now through October 29th, 2008.

    So much of what you post makes me miss the city. 7 months left in mid-Missouri. These prints are lovely. They remind me of humid late-summer afternoons on the lake shore.

    love the atmosphere in all the cast light and shadows. this is what my dreams look like.

    some of these pieces do feel late summery to me too. and if that is what your dreams look like, I can’t believe you have to wake up!
