As a sculptor, Paul Vexler’s interest lies in creating a visual and spatial experience within an environment. His delicate wood sculptures have evolved from his understanding of geometry in the natural world. This attraction to the intersections of art, mathematics and science inform his tall, twisting laminations in his current body of work.
Paul Vexler received his BFA from Penn State University in 1969. He began his career as a high school art teacher in the 1970s and successfully ran his own construction and wood products manufacturing business for 30 years. He has created installations for the Bellevue Arts Museum, Everett Community College and the Lynnwood Convention Center. His work is found in public collections in Everett, WA and Taipai, Taiwan.
Vexler's largest installation to date, 'Blue is Beautiful,' along with four freestanding sculptures created for the Boise Art Museum's 'Ribbons' exhibition will be on display through May 2016.
Paul Vexler was a featured artist at the 2015 SOFA Chicago Exposition.
