Britain b. 1961
Paul March is an English artist based in Geneva. Currently, he works mainly in clay which he uses to explore ambiguity using primitive yet strangely elegant forms.
A previous career as a clinical psychologist, specialising in neuropsychology, left him with an enduring fascination with how the brain perceives objects. As an artist, it is this which drives his search to create objects which defy categorisation. The sensation of ambiguity, at both the visual and conceptual level, often coupled with the absurd, also runs through his earlier works in other media, including painting, photography, drawing and three-dimensional installations.
“I think that, with my own art, what I want most is for people to have some kind of sensation rather than a thought – a physiological rather than a purely conceptual reaction.
March studied fine art at the Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD) from 2001-2004; and ceramics and polymerisation from 2009-2010 at the Centre d’Expérimentation et de Réalisation en Céramique Contemporaine in Geneva.
