Paula Cahill’s lyrical abstract paintings delight in elements of pure form. The sensuality and expressiveness of the line, shape, color, and texture of the paintings transcend their point of departure, becoming autonomous. Cahill celebrates the act of painting, capturing moments of the process with a bold simplicity that focuses the viewer’s attention on the formal elements making up the composition.
