after they have left. Both will show vibrant pieces, in realistic styles, that make you think. Shor is exhibiting her “Hidden Influence” series, consisting of oil paintings with strong subject to background contrast. Here figures are women, dressed femininely, and each is standing against machines or metal. In other words, in traditional male environments. She is showing the viewer women’s “dual natures” of “tenderness and strength”. Paul will show work in two styles of painting. One has the clarity of a photograph, but he has deliberately given it a “twist”, something to think on. “Bombing for Peace” shows a Vietnam era bomber contrastingly painted as a peace-loving hippie might paint a van. In Paul’s second style, he lays down smaller abstract shapes, to create large photo-realistic images of i.e. tumbling water or a ball of fire.
