PlanetPaul - THE 2nd CHAPTER

To the collectors, clients and followers of Paul's work.
 
It has been a while since PlanetPaul has sent out any news. I thought it was time to update you on what is happening with Paul's work and legacy after his death earlier this year.

I have embarked on a few extremely exciting projects, the first of which was the archiving of Paul's legacy. This took an incredible amount of time, 7 months in total. Claire McNulty spent from March up to last week Friday to do the archiving. What she has uncovered has surprised even me. The content that Paul has left
 have been digitised, and I am now exploring ways to preserve the notebooks, doodles, writings etc for future generations.

The thoughts, musings, notes on artworks, diary entries, poems and travel memorabilia that we found tell a story of a life lived with such enormous passion and energy. It helps to paint a picture of Paul the artist, the thinking behind his work, the processes he followed and explored, his inspirations.

I hope to publish some of these notebooks over the coming years.

Below are some of the projects that I embarked on in the last 6 months.

I have decided to release a few original paintings, some sculptures and works on paper.
Please contact me directly if you are interested in availability.

I view this as the 2nd chapter of PlanetPaul, and I am excited about preserving and growing the legacy of Paul.

Releasing 10 of 35 in the edition
Late January 2013, Paul spent time at The Robert Blackburn Printing Studio in New York City, printing his only edition work on paper during his lifetime. It is a woodcut print edition of 35, printed by master printer Steve Orlando. Filmmaker Gavin Elder made the following short clip, where Paul explains the process...

PAUL monograph
Ashraf Jamal, accomplished art writer, art critic, and previous editor of Art South Africa, is writing a monograph on Paul. We are in the process of editing the pieces written by the various contributors, and planning the format and layout. This will be a PlanetPaul publication, and I will launch the crowd funding project, using Thundafund early 2015.
