As the years pass by, it sometimes feels like they are over in the blink of an eye. Paul Kenton's 365 project saw the artist set himself the challenge of keeping track of each day, taking hold of usually fleeting moments and using them instead as inspiration to create a one-off painting to document magic in the mundane.
These original works are not only evidence of an internationally acclaimed artist's journey, exploring his abilities and putting his ambition to the test, but the chance to seize a minute, hour, day from another year gone by, whilst commemorating memories from significant locations throughout the year. Due to the nature of the project, Paul reached for the nearest tool to create these impressive works, so the collection of plein-air artwork features a variety of different mediums, including graphite, gouache, watercolour, oil, ink, and pastels.
Each artwork is dated and hand-signed, presented in a frame selected specially by Paul to best showcase each piece at its very best. When speaking about his celebrated collection, Paul stated: "These personal one-off artworks give an insight into the moments that stopped me in my tracks, inspiring me to reach for my paintbrush."
Paul's global travels during the 365 days of this project has imbued the art with snapshots of our earth and the effects that the four different seasons can have on flora, fauna, and human life. The highly unique nature of this collection and eclectic mix of mediums, imagery, and location, results in a body of work that will lend itself to the interior design of a vast variety of spaces. The 365 project artwork is sure to provide the perfect piece to fit any colour scheme, home trend or venue, and make a statement in whatever space it hangs.
