"Phil Stallard - Personal Graffiti Exhibition"
by
PHIL STALLARD


21-07-2018 - 10-08-2018


Lush Life
( PHIL STALLARD)

Exhibition Comments:

PHIL STALLARD   Abstract Paintings 2018 

Show title : PERSONAL GRAFFITI

Statement :

My latest abstractions are about places. I start with a memory (often of the Hawkesbury River - a place I explored as a child) and the painting evolves. I paint colour fields that are inhabited with spontaneous gestures, these marks are highly personal but I also appropriate visual ideas gleaned from the graffitied walls of the inner city and construction sites of the suburbs.

I am also drawn to the emotive qualities of Sydney's waterways - but there is always the hum of the city in the background. The paintings connect me psychologically to nature, the emotions and dialogue are intuitive and convey a sense of belonging.

Philip Stallard’s abstractions have spanned the past 15 years; his latest work combines spontaneous action painting with landscape. In this series Philip has loosened up and is exploring the interplay between abstraction, landscape and urban graffiti.

The work has a colouristic rigour and excitement that engages the viewer on many levels, there are Sydney urban landscape 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 over the past 20 years in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane; he has also exhibited internationally and has completed many commissions.
