About Philip

Throughout the beginning of his career, Philip Barlow specialized in painting large murals in South Africa and abroad. After refining his ability to translate scale and openness in his murals, he began to explore a unique contemporary style using oils on canvas. Barlow is fascinated by light and its effect on different surfaces, especially the abstraction of forms often generated by both natural and artificial lighting. Although he hints at forms and shapes in his work, not all the information is given, therefore allowing the viewer an avenue to create their own stories and meanings.

"Impressionism, I like it. This reveals a different perspective when I'm not focusing on what the out of focus images are. Letting go of that demand brings out a real neat quality, I bet it's a fun process. I do think more interesting subjects would make it more meaningful though."
