  • Artist’s Statement

    “Capturing the light striking a range of subject matter has
    always interested me whether it is the landscape, nude or
    cityscapes. I'm interested in our emotional response to the
    often fleeting memories we retain of something we have seen
    and how it affected us. It could be a glare on water or a pose
    we see for a millisecond as someone moves in every day life
    to touch their hair or dry themselves after a swim. I'm also
    concerned with creating an exciting painting surface with
    abstract qualities and enjoy painting in warm low evening or
    winter light to resolve form, colour and light into a warm
    companion on canvas.”
    Philip works with oil, water-colour, dry-point and etching.
    His immediate environment is Christchurch, where he lives,
    with its cityscapes, the Canterbury plains, the Southern Alps
    and Banks Peninsula - all sources of subject matter and
    inspiration. Philip regularly travels and paints around New
    Zealand and has had several trips overseas gathering material
    from which he has painted.
