After serving our country as an Army pilot during the Korean War, he turned his attention to law and became a respected attorney and a judge known for his fairness. He enjoyed great success and respect in his profession. But Paul walked away from practicing law to follow his dream: to become an artist. His expectation was to express emotion and beauty as he envi- sions them. In addition to this expression, Braslow was an uncompromising perfectionist in the execution of his concepts and in the production or each indi- vidual sculpture. A quotation from his website describes his artistic philosophy: "Braslow's sculptures show life as he would like it to be... graceful, elegant and hopeful. They inevi- tably recall the work of Brancusi in their grace, and the work of Giacometti in their intensity. After the first impressions, one reads the sculptures for their strength of balance, and only then the sense of motion becomes apparent and remains the lasting impression..." Paul's sculptures include ideal- ized representations of Creation, Hope and Communication. His sculptures of women range from an innocent novitiate to sophisticated fashion models to the fertility goddess Astarte whose curves merge endlessly into each other. Braslow has served us as a soldier, a public servant and, espe- cially, by sharing his visions of perfection through his art.
