New Direction


I have been totally absorbed for the past few weeks working on a series of auto-biographical paintings on paper that also incorporate collage from my own photographs. I think is a natural progress from my street art paintings and something that I am thoroughly enjoying. I plan a series of about 15 and have completed about 7.

I have also been busy teaching my art process which has been both enjoyable and exhausting. I need a holiday!

Glad to hear you have been pleasantly engaged.

I am enjoying seeing how you have moved from graffiti photographs (as well as your abstractions) into applying that in a more personal way.
The colour, composition and text is really intriguing.

It's good to be absorbed in the art your making. Looking forward to seeing the whole series.

And teaching art is exhausting - taking something so internal and trying to make it external. I find it very tiring so I don't do it very often.

This is an inspiring piece and I like the idea of an autobiographical series, cool idea!

The introspection can always lead to new territory. I'd love to see more of this series.

I really like the use of colour, Philip. Is it my imagination or is there a religious undertone to this particular piece.

Everyone - Thanks for all your comments. I plan to do more of these.

No not especially as I am not a religious person. Perhaps this represents some of my own spititual beliefs though.
