Phils’ work draw on inanimate objects and landscapes. He uses original photographs and artwork, collaged together using projections and multiple exposures to form the final print.
His pieces are created by layers of everyday images, which pieced together produce an explosion of vibrant colour, generating energy and movement. The photographs establish a depth, which draws the viewer in, each showing a different adventure, reflecting a different aspect of life.
They are not just snapshots, but short stories, mini movies, a snippet of real life. You feel you are watching a microcosm of universal life, each time noticing something new.
