AXOM Gallery is delighted to present to the community our fourth solo exhibition of paintings by Paul Garland. Throughout his career Paul has, with unflagging commitment, pursued an intensive studio engagement which has led to numerous solo exhibitions in galleries across the country including New York City, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis and other major art centers. Early in Garland’s career, the Everson Museum mounted two one person exhibitions of his paintings, the second of which, a remarkable series of large format watercolors traveled to five other universities and colleges around the country.
Garland’s previous exhibition of paintings at Axom Gallery in 2016, in his words, “was a response in part to the deaths of multiple friends. Many paintings from the series were literally ripped in half on a table saw and reassembled in a symbolic gesture of sudden change and subsequent renewal after disjuncture and rupture.”
This current exhibit, COME-IN, the extended series, is a large group of mostly smaller works put together through a much gentler and light hearted process which Paul describes as “assimilating collage elements into the paintings in a manner that was unforced and natural presenting welcome, fascinating and at times difficult challenges”.
Paul Garland received his BFA and MFA at Rochester institute of Technology, and is a Professor Emeritus at SUNY Oswego. He has developed a wide reaching and enduring following of collectors, art enthusiasts, former art students and colleagues who have continued to enjoy the development of his unique style as painter throughout the years.

"Shapely” Recent Paintings and Prints by Alan Singer January 12 [...]
“Spanning the past few years, this work represents a progression of sustained exploration. I rely on process rather than intent. Venture first; meaning may follow. I believe there is value in an inner recursive approach to creation. How do I know what I mean until I reflect on what I’ve created? 2015 to 2018 has been a time of shifts in both my personal world and the outer world as I have experienced it. There is a story here. It chronicles the journey of creating and reflects my response to the currents of time, the changing political landscape, daily life, and the solace of nature.”
