Regarding the Work
larry paul’s subject matter varies to include some of his favorite themes. In what he calls a thru things® concept, he portrays old, decaying doors, windows, and other openings in and along buildings and structures. These human-made objects offer interests of patina beyond their age alone. Sometimes, façade-centric or bustling urban street scenes become the preferred subject, some of which the artist will sign his work using his earlier LP Frey moniker.
His monotone and color plant and philodendron models make an attempt toward realism. larry paul has also recognized the chaos of 2020 with a series of Black Lives Matter expressions. The artist’s Angry Thematics series has been a long-standing subject for him. These outwardly expressive strike very bold strokes and color compositions.
The sought-after Anna Maria Island sunsets series offer a bold interpretation of the island and its beauty, but in an impressionistic/abstract manner. The same can be said about his Hawai’i Volcanoes interpretations, which are the result of his experiences as a Park Ranger for the popular national park there.
