English by birth, but living in New York, Paul Etienne Lincoln is one of the most complex and sophisticated figures on the international art scene. Author of works “exhibitions”, famous for their complexity and for the meticulous realization that they involve, he has been working for years on the relationships between nature and mechanics, proposing works with a fairy-tale and outdated flavor, fed by metaphors and suggestions drawn from the history of science, of culture and art.
