Drawing on many experiences in life and travel, Paul Kerrigan's work incorporates everyday nuances that he captures on a canvas.
Relying on design principles, Paul builds a painting with a strong narrative and bold aesthetics. A balance of color a texture blends imagery with an enveloping abstract world.
Paul allows his environment to emerge onto his canvas with its emotional state being as influential as the literal image. Embracing the beauty in landscapes and dwellings, his work engages the viewer with contrasting imagery. This creates tension between the viewer, the painting, and its content.
