It is hardly a surprise to hear Paul Dimmer talk about his love of sculpture and passion for his art when you see the detail he applies to his creations. Self taught and a master of many different mediums, Paul career spans many years of dedication beginning at age ten by carving his first sculpture.

The exquisite surface treatment, evident on closer examination serves as the 'icing' on and already stylish 'cake'. The simple clean lines of the forms contain both the notion of reality and poetry of gestural abstraction.
