“Paris painted as a child. Then he stopped. Then he grew up. And then, later, he started painting again. He says he wants to communicate with his paintings the things that words can’t. I read very specific places and stories, moods, feelings in his paintings, and I also see that others read them very differently. And that’s fascinating. I feel as if he kind of tackles a ‘taboo’ in art, perhaps several taboos. His paintings maintain something from how he painted as a child. That is terribly difficult. They are genuinely about the process; his process, the making of the art, and nothing else. And that is terribly refreshing and liberating. Art IS allowed to be that as well. A way of connecting with people in everyday life. He draws fast and stops when what he wants to do is done.”
