"It `s about photographic subjects, fuck buddies, dance partners,
short term lovers and long term friends." - Paul DeFlorian
"Embracing your imperfections isn’t an easy thing to do, and
this is especially true within the art world. If you’ve ever shown
your work in a gallery setting, you know exactly what I’m talking
about! As you’re standing there eavesdropping on the crowd,
you can clearly hear a snooty insider criticizing your pieces or
rolling their eyes at any perceived “flaw”.
And that’s what I find so refreshing about Paul DeFlorian‘s paintings
and drawings. Stylistically, he’s all over the place, jumping
from photorealistic depictions to less controlled compositions.
Yet when you see photos of his pieces hanging next to one another?
It’s obvious there’s an intentional aspect to his messiness
and occasional inconsistency.
Whether you like his style or not, you can’t deny this guy has a
clear vision of how his work should be perceived. He’s not just
slapping half-naked dudes on a canvas and letting the paint drip
down in a sloppy fashion. Everything is carefully thought out beforehand,
right down to the so-called “imperfections”." - Dewitt
