Paula MacArthur

Paula MacArthur is a painter. She trained at the Royal Academy Schools and was a John Moore’s Painting Prize winner in 1993.
Paula’s focus is crystals & jewels, these are explorations of colour & light, a contemporary response to Dutch 17th-century vanitas painting. Solitary, precious stones are captured in the spotlight, displayed as icons which lure us in and quietly invite us to investigate the multifaceted associations we bring to these treasures.

Career highlights include
'Arcadia for All? Rethinking Landscape Painting Now' at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery Leeds, touring to the Attenborough Art Centre, Leicester, with artworks by Hurvin Anderson, Lubaina Himid, Matthew Krishanu, Paula MacArthur, Elizabeth Magill & George Shaw.
