Philip Barlow’s Oil Paintings

Looking at Philip Barlow‘s work takes a bit of getting used to, especially in this day of high-definition and hyper-realism. Blurry, hazy, but definitely a familiar sight, probably the best description is found on the artist’s Bio page: “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.”

As for Philip’s own stories, the South African native has traveled all over Europe, exhibited in Holland, Johannesburg, and San Francisco before settling down in his current location of Noordhoek, Cape Town with “two children and a dog”.
