Paul leads on performance, video, photography, digital media, sound, installation and socially engaged art practices.

Paul’s work is based on geography as an epistemological structure visualised through performance, video, photography, sound and drawing. From balancing acts and attempted border leaps, antagonistic border greeting performances to flag waving, Paul’s practice is concerned with the political, cultural and social systems that govern territory.

He works collaboratively with artist Guy Mayman as part of DATAMOSH, developing hallucinatory visuals and ritualistic performances that reanimate a large archive of visual material. As a process of exploration and data mining the work responds to an excess of visual and audio material through deconstruction and re-contextualisation.

Paul has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally including g39, Cardiff; Motorcade Flash Parade, Bristol; AC Institute, New York; A.T.P Gallery, London and MOTI, Breda.

Contributions to conferences and publications include ‘Croeso I Gymru /Welcome to England – Performing the Welsh/English Border’, Art and Geopolitical Borders conference, MMU; ‘Cerbyd as Project’, Numbers Publication, ‘Small Town Kids’, Dazed and Confused magazine.and Confused magazine.
