Mat Gleason’s review in the Huffington Post 21 Artists Update a Larry Rivers Update of Audubon at 101/Exhibit not only mentioned Paiement’s painting, he called it a masterpiece…”Paul Paiement echoes the methodology of Rivers in forming a construct on which to mount his Audubon representations. Entitled “After Audubon, After Rivers – American Robin” Paiement gives us a precisely painted pair of songbirds with the same sculptural collage effect Rivers used in many of his Audubon reflections. What we have is an acrylic and mixed media mini-masterpiece with its historical precedents laid out right in front of us.”
