Artist Bio: Philip is based in Surrey, UK. He studied sculpture at Staffordshire University but has since focused on painting. He became professional in 2004, showing his work through Art fairs and exhibitions, notably Affordable Art Fairs in New York and Melbourne. He has worked on a number of private and corporate commissions including the Connaught Hotel, London.

He was recently awarded an Arts Council bursary to investigate new media and techniques and in 2021 was lead Artist locally for the Big Draw. Philip is currently Artist in Residence at a local school and is represented by Will’s Art Warehouse.

Artist Statement: For several years I have been working on a series of large and small scale drawings and paintings inspired by local mixed wood and heathland. All the work derives from drawings that are pushed to abstraction through a reductive painting process. This small painting is part of the ‘Roots Suite’ series which focuses on detailed areas of ground patches and tree roots. I like the combination of loose paint with more considered mark making and in some of the work I often incorporate tightly drawn elements using silverpoint, pencil and most recently, hand embroidery.
