Philip Barlow - slowing a split second

"Following Barlow's sold out show at Everard Read London in 2018, for his new exhibition, the artist turns his attention to the streets and beaches of Cape Town in his ongoing quest to frame and capture in oil paint, the moment when light, form and colour collide; that elusive moment where time is suspended and distilled to convey a sense of grace and glory.

Barlow continues his exploration of bokeh* – the aesthetic quality of out-of-focus blur in a photograph - deftly harnessing the technique to conjure light-filled beach scenes or cityscapes that present an intriguing and ambiguous version of reality."
