Considering his style “Industrial modern,” Phillip explores the raw aesthetic of the authentic world, such as time’s effect on surfaces, textures that are the result of continuous, repeated actions that begin to reveal the previous layers underneath. Things that tell a story beyond the surface.
He finds inspiration in graffiti, typography, traffic worn streets, weathered walls and billboards, bones and fossils –the unscripted events that record the effects of life, or echo a period of time. Combining the fluidity and subtle texture of the natural world with the clean, hard edge precision of modern technical age, his art is a continual expression of rawness, contrast and the beauty of change.
Originally from Mobile, Alabama, Phillip previous life in advertising and design has taken him to Boston, Washington, D.C., Memphis, and his current residence in Greenville, South Carolina, USA. His paintings have sold both locally and internationally.
