Philip’s work explores the graphic elements in everyday life and how they can be altered to skew our perception of the world we live in.
Originally based on optical semiotics of institutional Health and Safety culture, his new series of work looks further into the world of architecture. Distorting perceptions of existing spaces, using selective processes to focus on key aspects of space and perspective.
The drawings, paintings and installations that Philip is still developing use the patterns found in everyday occurrences, sometimes in mundane locations, then reintegrating the subject into an unfamiliar landscape.
His work now focuses more on the material nature of this particular subject, developing installations and objects that appear to hold a function through the use of industrial materials and processes.
