Paul Pedulla has been covered many times by artscope magazine. The first was in our December/November 2008 issue in a Capsule Preview; then he was featured amongst “25 artists that have captured our imagination” in the March/April 2011 issue and was included in our “artists in their workplaces” centerfold in the May/June 2012 issue.
He has only been working seriously as an artist since 2006; each year he has greatly progressed in his career and produced innovative works. His paintings are surreal and smooth. They capture life in a unique way. Pedulla’s perception of shape and space is indefinable; minimalistic, yet lifelike. The flatness of the objects accentuates the basic shapes, which produce complex and intriguing landscapes. Pedulla has gained much attention from publications, galleries, companies and collectors.
Pedulla’s 2013 has been equally, if not more, prolific in development that those of his past. In January, his pieces “Ocean Edge” and “Grey Gables” were accepted into “Art and Alchemy,” a juried show by the USEA at Gold Gallery in Boston’s South End. He had a solo show at the Thomas Moser Park Plaza showroom from February through April, then in April, he had another solo show at Chelmsford Library. Proceeding this show, he appeared in the Boston Globe, as well as feature stories in the Chelmsford Independent and the Chelmsford Patch.
In June, his piece “Ocean Edge” was accepted into Danforth Art’s “Off the Wall” show that was juried by Dinia Deitsch, a curator at the DeCordova Museum. Recently, his work was shown on the home page of care.com, and he has been contacted to put work online with Serena & Lilly, which took nine of his pieces and has already sold one.
Paul Pedulla is currently represented by Boston Art, Sharon Weiss Gallery, and Serena & Lilly. For more information, visit paulpedulla.com.
