The paintings of Philip Barlow possess a dream like quality. They seem strangely familiar, like a warm and comforting, hazy memory.
The South African native has been painting since the early nineties and has developed a unique style of abstraction. Here’s how he explains his work: The figures in the landscape serve as carriers and reflectors of the light that falls upon them. Bathed in the luminosity, it is my hope that they would become more beautiful. To me, light is the ultimate subject because it embodies the pinnacle of all reality.
