Paul Merrick

Artist, Maker, Curator, Teacher, Gallery educator

My current practice combines painting with sculpture and the made with the ready-made. My continued interrogation of painting and process has seen me evolve from working exclusively with oil paint and two-dimensions to gradually introducing new materials (Fablon, gaffa tape, furniture, scrap metal, strip lighting, gloss paint) in order to investigate colour, shape and form.
