Paul Schrader's works are characterized by the incomplete application of color, the open shapes, the pale grounding of the canvas: these voids open up a space of thought for the viewer. Dots of color that stick to a canvas like faded flowers. The sweeping application of color suggests Da Vinci's "A Deluge" drawings and brings them into the 21st century with contemporary color and size. After all: "Almost every serious contemporary work of art recapitulates on an implicit or explicit level the historical sequence of the objects to which it belongs" (Thomas Crow).
For Schrader, his art is about the visual power of the paintings, which touch us for a moment in a never resting society.
