After qualifying as an engineer Paul Abell spent most of his career working with buildings whether in building services or the interiors and exteriors. For this reason, much of Paul’s work focusses on the beautiful architecture of his native Dublin which he is surrounded by every day.
Whether it’s his series of Georgian doorways, his beautiful streetscapes of the older parts of the city around Rathmines, Ranelagh or Gardener Row, Paul’s attention to detail and his sympathetic preservation of the aesthetic captures a special part of the Dublin facades in his work.
Now that Paul has retired from engineering he spends much of his free time travelling the content with his wife and this has influenced his new body of work the Tranquillity series . This body of work has such a still eerie quality one can’t help but staring into the depths of each paining and immersing oneself in the silence of the still waters.
Paul recently finished a solo exhibition at the library in Rathmines, has also exhibited at the Ideal homes exhibition in the R.D.S. and will also be exhibiting at Art source on Nov 11th this year.
