Philip Stallard’s abstractions have spanned the past 27 years; there are Sydney urban graffiti references and he is just as comfortable with a spray can, chisel or a brush when making marks.
Philip has had successful solo exhibitions yearly in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane; he has also exhibited internationally and has completed many commissions.
“My latest abstractions are derived from highly personal abstract memories. I have a connection with Hawkesbury River that goes back many years, I return to the Hawkesbury repeatedly and convert what is happening in my life into colour.
I seek out the natural places of my urban world for inspiration. The suburbs, the waterways and the bush in and around Sydney that evoke archaic primal memories. These places are somehow for me physiologically connected to the Hawkesbury.
Painting for me is a lifelong obsession, I have always painted – it is who I am”
