Paul Heyer


acrylic on silk
48 x 37 inches

A lily stem anchors the center of the canvas in this elegant work by LA-based Paul Heyer. Meandering lines of the petals and leaves move out and disappear under thin washes of acrylic paint that has soaked into the support. Heyer’s works on silk appear as if lit from behind, and possess the relaxed, tranquil beauty of a daydream. In Summer Buzz, calligraphic lines, organic shapes, and veils of paint float in a translucent space, lazily drifting in and out of view. Heyer’s work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the US.
