“I love being an artist, I’m proud. Painting feels marvelous. I want people to see the work as gorgeous. They [my drawings] protect me from changes. It’s a way to keep the people who are important to me close.”
Sanders Paul is a young man who has been an artist at Gateway since 2001. Throughout his time at Gateway Arts, he has produced a large inventory of artwork, most notable his drawings of people. At any give time throughout the day, you can find him carefully and thoughtfully rendering people from his life and conversations they are having. Paul’s reasoning for these images is honest and sincere; they create a way to interact with the people he holds dearly. When Paul paints he often chooses imagery of wolves and cats. He has seen these animals numerous times over the course of his many trips to Israel. It is safe to say that such paintings are a way to keep his heritage close. Indeed, Paul is devoted to his Jewish heritage and enjoys incorporating important aspects of it into his artwork.
