Painter Paula Izydorek of Cleveland, OH spent her formative years in Southern California and has since lived in several major US cities. She is passionate about her heritage and has traveled to all but three of the states. During her travels, Izydorek looks to contemporary painting and the abundant perfection found in nature for continual inspiration. Although she inherently knows the exquisiteness of nature can never be improved upon, through the painting process, it is her goal to paint homage to its vast heterogeneity of textures, formations and all-encompassing palates. Izydorek received a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute. Her work is included in the Cleveland Art Association and in several private collections throughout the US. Her paintings have been juried into numerous solo and group exhibitions.
“Through painting, [I] examine and attempt to resolve universal yet personal conflicts such as the meaning of home or the unfolding of self worth,” Izydorek said. “During this process-based exploration, [I] incorporate wood grain as the main subject of [my] narrative. The unique grain pattern metaphorically portrays how one’s experiential journey exists in a constant state of being altered by the surrounding energy in one’s environment.”
