Comment
私がオランダのハーグ王立美術アカデミーに留学ていた時のルームメイトです。当時、英語もままならない怪しいアジア人であった私に部屋を快く提供してくれた、心やさしい人物です。人間をテーマとした彼の荒々しくも率直なイメージからは、しばしば作家が忘れがちになる「表現する事」の本質を考えさせられると思います。

Paul was my roommate when I was studying abroad at the Royal Academy of Art in the Netherlands. He was so kind to accommodate me, I must have seemed to him a suspicious Asian person with broken English. The essence of expression, which tends to get forgotten by many artists, is what Paul really gets at in his rough yet honest and straightforward rendering of humans in his images.
