A native Bostonian, Paul Riedl is a traveller who has lived in both the near and far east. An eastern minimalism and aesthetic is inherent in his artworks, however it is Riedl's western approach and rigorous craft that define his artistic perspective. Widely known as a leading authority in the restoration and convervation arts, Riedl's mastery of materials grounds his ability to experiment and achieve such unique results. True to his discipline, Riedl constructs all of his forms from their raw ingredients, reinterpreting classical materials with an avant garde flair. From beginning to end, his artworks arise from a rigourous process and they are profound and mindful in reflecting simplicity.
