Working in the ancient and mysterious medium of enamel on metal, Paul Hultberg created colorful and lyrical abstract paintings from the 1950s to the 1980s in ways that had never before been done. Hultberg removed himself from the art versus craft debate, pursuing his vision with determination in a material unfamiliar to many, yet fascinating to all. Hultberg took this traditional craft medium and spread it over vast planes, exploring its textural possibilities. Enamel had traditionally reflected light in its mirror-like surface; Hultberg played smoothly against rough surfaces in large-scale paintings that glisten with explosive color, but also absorb and exude darkness like a celestial black hole.
