DescriptionAcrylic painting.“I like the painting very much: the careful incongruousness of the items denotes both a sense of humor and hours spent looking at surrealist paintings. The colors are warm and somehow appealing.”“La pintura me da una profunda tristeza por la cara del tren y por estar partido; ¿en qué estabas pensando?, ¿ en algo triste? De todas maneras, me gustan los colores y la composición con la concha, pero la mezcla del hierro lo convierte en interferencia humana en la naturaleza.”
Pollux (Paul Morris), Los Angeles, California Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement Pollux (né Paul Morris) is a Surrealist Painter. Born in Beverley, England, in 1979, he is currently based in Los Angeles, California. Having received degrees in History and Latin from UCLA and History from Brown University, Pollux followed up this training in history with an associate degree in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles. He has created a series of semi-abstract prints and illustrations that depict musicians and their instruments -jazz musicians, classical musicians, players of Spanish instruments- along with various drawings of deities, animals, and landscapes. Pollux’s September 2013 solo exhibition “30 Birds” featured a collection of avian portraits: birds of various sizes and species are depicted with some feature of human life or human society. His paintings have appeared in the ArtLife Gallery in El Segundo, California and the Taché Gallery in New York City.
Not satisfied with working solely with paint, Pollux has also self-published more than thirty comics and graphic novels, including Altamira, The Golden Helmsman, A Lime on a Rain-Covered Sidewalk, Ferrex and Porrex, Stratilayabout, Candlelight Master, Seven Stories, and In the Lamp District.
