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.

To be announced 



One can see immediately how Ketchum’s core sense of design in his artwork is related to his work as a Graphic artist. What is not so evident is that which he is expressing, as he mixes numerical symbols with alphabetical and geometric ones, compelling the viewer to examine closely the multiple layers of textures and shapes, all interacting in a field of interchangeable negative and positive spaces, in search of meaning - a reflection perhaps, of Ketchum’s own life journey.
