Paul Jenkins

Paul Jenkins is an abstract expressionist painter. Using controlled paint-pouring technique, which invites him to pour the color directly onto the support, Paul Jenkins is fully involved in the post-war action painting. Between spontaneity and mastery of the artistic gesture, his work evolves naturally towards the affirmation of the color, in particular by the new use of acrylic: as a result liquid forms which stand out on white backgrounds: these Phenomena, inspired by the theories of the color of Goethe.

Paul Jenkins is an artist associated with the movement of lyrical abstraction. From these brightly colored works emerge a certain rhythm with a musical connotation very present in the composition of his works.
