Paul Pascarella says of his painting: "“I paint almost as an act of automatic writing, walking the line between figurative and absolute abstraction by textually and lyrically using this language of ambiguity. Willingly or not, the ambiguousness of my paintings takes hold of the imagination like looking at clouds, and puts it to work. I think of the painting, then, dancing on the edge of chaos until viewed by the subjective imagination of the viewer."

Pascarella has lived and worked in Taos since 1986.
