Paul Roehl

Paul Roehl’s work will be highlighted in the gallery February 18 to March 18, 2017.

On Saturday, February 25th, Paul gave a lecture called “Beyond Representation: The Poetic Landscape”. More…

As a longtime admirer of Arthur Mathews and other tonalists, I responded immediately to Paul Roehl’s landscapes and palette and am thrilled to have his work in the Gallery. Paul (his last name is pronounced rail) lives in Santa Cruz, having been raised in California, primarily in the South Bay Area. Though his primary interest is in contemporary non-objective or abstract imagery, he enjoys sketching plein-air and accurately recreating the techniques and style of late 19th and early 20th century landscape painters. He also turns to earlier Barbizon school painters for inspiration, as well as American tonalist painters, citing especially the subtle and fresh visual poetry of George Inness and William Keith.

Paul is currently an adjunct professor of Art and Art History at De Anza College in Cupertino, California. In May of 2015, Paul did an hour lecture in the Holton Studio Gallery. A video of the lecture can be viewed on this blog post.

Paul’s work was featured in our February, 2015 show,  A Continuous Harmony: New Tonalist Paintings by Robert Flanary and Paul Roehl. View the show’s webpage…

His painting “Sunrise, Fremont” from this show won first place at the 2015 Santa Cruz Art Leagues 85th Annual State Wide Landscape Show.
