Ornamental Renegade
Paul McDonald's interest lies in furniture and decor, and his show will consist of 7 or 8 groupings of furniture, with exotic and evocative names such as "Mesopotamia", "Empire", and "inquisition". The evocation of other times, other cultures was accidental, but effective and attractive. The artist's emphasis is on the finishing, although the shapes and styles of the pieces are all original and beautiful, some having been happened upon, some designed specially for the show. Using such techniques as "faux marble," gilding and glazing, McDonald seeks to create a sense of age and richness in his woods and fabric.
