Frank Paul
(2010 London)

Frank Paul was born in London in 1984 and his parents are the very renown
artists Celia Paul and Lucien Freud. Frank knew he wanted to be an artist from
an early age; he doodled in his exercise books at school like most of us, only
Frank has never really stopped.


When I first encountered one of his drawings, it stopped me in my tracks and
I knew that I wanted to own it. That feeling of being transported to another
place is something you can readily experience, especially in Franks work.
His figures are very intimate, provocative, revealing, people at their most
reviling, depicting the fragility of the individual. They are also, on
closer inspection, sinister and challenging, they draw you in inviting you
to make up stories about them. Somewhere in there you feel you shouldn't be
intruding but you cannot resist.

Franks drawings also depict enigmatic figures traversing desolate
environments. Both the people and the places seem familiar, yet are oddly
out of place, refugees, pilgrims, and wanderers, trying to get to somewhere
that is forever out of reach. I think they are answering a call that is
consciously understandable, but resonates somewhere inside us all. It draws
us to a place forgotten that we once knew about. They are compelling and
revolting at the same time and yet they are captivating.

To meet Frank is to meet someone from an entirely different world, time and
place to the one most of us inhabit. He is gentle, shy almost gawkily
uncomfortable in unfamiliar company but incredibly engaging. He has a
steely determination to conquer this and is willing to put himself "out
there" to experience where this might lead. To discover that he and a
fellow Cambridge University student performed their own material at the
Edinburgh Festival last year comes as a complete shock. To discover that he
is a non smoking, non drinking vegetarian is not. I suspect there are many
more things to learn about this young man, for now he remains an enigma.

There is no doubt that genetically he has been blessed with the physical
traits of his parents and it can already be seen that both sets of genes are
blossoming in his artistic abilities. This is just the beginning and the
prospect for the future is intriguing. Frank is currently working more oil paintings
and particularly his portraiture skills. He has a very special project on the
drawing board - a book of very carefully crafted anatomical drawings unlike
anything I have seen before.
