    The Professor and Deputy Dean of the School of Art & Design delivers his inaugural lecture, 'Deviants versus Democracy!'

    Paul's statement:

    "Why throw bricks when you can paint pictures with them? I choose to refer to myself as an artist; therefore I need to engage with processes of art. I aim to perceive the world through affiliations; join initiatives, share ideas, collaborate, and co-create." 

    "Where it is my beginning, I start by examining the fabric of the environment and I try to form a sense of place identity. I search for an impression; I harvest, edit and select colour keys that represent the character and memory of a particular geography."

    "It’s a bit like landscape painting except that the paint has to come from the land. A simple solution would be to make paint from a house brick, for example."

    "Where someone else begins, I start by trying to absorb pre-existing relational aesthetics and social character relevant to a place or a narrative. I aim to gain some sense of emerging content rather than understand. I rely on the presence of others and discover my role within their shadow."

    "I paint myself into a landscape. A simple solution would be to make paint out of my skin to add colour to the local palette."
