Paul Pagk @ Some Walls

Paul Pagk: "Drawings from the Series: The Mesquite Drawings"
April 9, 2011 – May 29, 2011

From an essay by Chris Ashley.

"At Paul Pagk’s New York studio in September 2010 we spent a good amount of time looking at and talking about several large, complex, impressive paintings. It was a wonderful visit. Shortly before I left he began pulling out boxes, stacks, and piles of drawings in various media and different sizes; it was an amazing sight. Among these were The Mesquite Drawings, about which Pagk says, "I made these drawings and others in two drawing pads during and after my visit to Marfa and the Chinati Mountains." From this visit a plan was hatched to bring a selection of Pagk’s drawings to Some Walls in Oakland."

Some Walls is a curatorial and writing art project in a private home in Oakland, California. Some Walls is open by appointment only. View the exhibition online at To schedule a visit, or for more information, please contact Chris Ashley at
