Inspired by the horizons, water scenes and rolling hills that surround his studio in Southeastern Ontario, the contemporary paintings of Paul Chester portray peaceful settings in the natural landscape: metaphors for the passage of time.

Far from urban centers, various subjects of natural beauty are painted from memory, resulting in suggested landscapes that invite the viewer to step into a spiritual realm where nature is experienced as an emotional reminiscence rather than a precise physical location.

Celebrating his 41st  year as a professional artist, Paul Chester was born in Toronto and lives in a rural area Northeast of Toronto.
