Philip currently lives and paints in Noordhoek, Cape Town. He is married and has two children and a dog. His inspiration, and challenge, is to create visual documents that reflect his Christian faith – the beliefs and values that define him. Using everyday scenes, he explores illuminated moments within our seemingly ordinary lives.

Although he works within a long tradition of landscape painting, his depiction of the ‘seen’ landscape is simply a vehicle through which he navigates territory of another nature. A landscape less ordinary; where the line between the physical and the spiritual realm has seemingly been removed.

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 Philip, light is the ultimate subject because it embodies the pinnacle of all reality.
