Primrose Paul is a Kenyan-born a multidisciplinary artist, writer, and curator who earned her BFA in studio art with a concentration in painting at the University of Indianapolis. As an artist, Paul mainly works with oil painting experimenting on the relationship between the foreground, background, and texture in portraiture. Paintings created are made as opposites of one another often accompanied with a component of storytelling. The subjects in her paintings are often depicted against colorful backgrounds where she explores the relationship between the foreground and background, looking at the effect the viewer gets when either is the focal point. As a curator, Paul has worked with the Office of Inclusive Excellence and Retention Strategy to create a gallery space that celebrates multi-culturism at the University of Indianapolis. Paul’s practice with writing explores identity in the cultural marketplace, specifically focusing on speculation of an Afrofuturist future. She is a member of the editorial collective of FIELD: A Journal of Socially Engaged Art Criticism where her essay on Afrofuturism was published.
