Purveyors of Amusement
50 × 60 cm, acrylic on paper, 2021 - framed
Paul Grodhues (born 1996) lives and works in his hometown Saarbrücken, Germany.
Focused on painting he is initially inspired by experiences with latin American culture, expression of amusement became characteristic for his works.
Beyond the cultural subject of matter his compositions are mainly set up in entertainment venues. Figures and sceneries appear mystic and humorous why they often remain enigmatic. As his paintings evolve in a process of many layers and superimposition, fragmentary elements are used in a targeted manner. Not always they are further worked out to concrete objects or figures but often end up abstract aswell.
