Graphics at the University Lincoln, has had his work exhibited internationally
Phil describes his work as exploring “the boundaries between media, materials, process and concept”.
Phil explains: “I might use Polaroids or photocopies of original material because of the immediacy of the processes and distinct aesthetic signatures added by mediating material through a variety of image capture devices.
“The Xerox machine is one of my favourite tools, closely followed by a cheap digital instamatic camera. Then I would mix this imagery with collage and maybe re-photograph and re-photocopy until I ended up with an image that I am happy with.
“Also I am really interested in pop culture and aware of the impact that media imagery usually has. Generally though any imagery from sweet wrappers, train tickets, till receipts, etc that may have been found in the street, through to original material that I have created are all considered for inclusion in the work.”
The exhibition is on at The Ropewalk,
