Artist Statement
What excites me the most about painting is the ability to create movement and illusionary depth within a rectangle as defined by the placement of color structures and paint application. For example, how space can be defined by color and shapes and how grouping objects can make them lose their individual identities, creating a more evocative, abstract and unforeseen composition. My endeavor is to convey an honest appraisal of what my eye saw, expressing it with an unpretentious naturalness. - Paula Swaydan Grebel
