Facebook ironically is not a book and is probably used daily more than the original book (the bible). I have taken what are exclusively digital Mediums and created a mixed media 2D artwork exploring a number of related themes. It’s bold – a statement maker and one that suits both decorative motifs as well as a stand-alone piece of art. To create such a piece I utilise a wooden panel, allowing me to physically score and gauge the surface. Along with being aesthetically pleasing, I want such works to involve the social, political and economic themes in which I live, as well as having a particular leaning towards the social and digital world that’s such a large part of my life. The sharp lines used symbolise the cutting through of words, phrases and media headlines that not only relate to life in general, but the frenetic gathering of all within the social web. Its important to me that such a work conveys emotion and expression, but without the need to contain an object or a form as we know it. The origin is in geometric abstraction and Orphism. Unlike my other distinctive style, the dominating force is social commentary, as opposed to emotional release. 80 x 80 x 1 cm. Please message for answers to any further questions you may have. Additional images upon request. Global Shipping available. The painting is signed both front and back and will be delivered directly from my studio extremely well packaged, insured and protected. You do not need to frame it – it can simply be hung. Hanging/installation hardware fitted. Final coat of varnish will be applied for protection. A signed Certificate of Authenticity will be provided with the painting. Whether you buy or browse thank you for taking the time to explore my work.

Benjamin Phillips is an artist who uses everything from paint brushes to power tools to create large-scale, mixed-media compositions on handmade wooden panels. By developing his own unique art-making techniques he is able to marry his history—as the son of a master craftsman, oil painter and driftwood sculptor—with his interest in the contemporary urban landscape and is able to connect seemingly disparate ideas through form and materials. Many of the collage elements in his work are culled directly from the streets of London. Once back in his studio, he incorporates these ephemera into his work to create a contemporary abstraction. He gathers public imagery to repurpose towards his own aesthetic. Through this work, he explores the relationship between materiality and urban landscapes. Like the layers that make up the human consciousness, the layers of his work include posters, flyers, graffiti, and other aspects of urban archaeology that comprise the city’s psyche. The fragmented, textural, topographical nature of his work reflects the city’s ever-changing surfaces, which have accrued years of printed matter. His work is a snapshot of a specific moment. It combines many cultures and many stories into individual works of art, both calling to mind London’s sensory overload of colours, noises, and smells and allowing viewers to determine the works’ dynamic meaning and social impact for themselves. Benjamin Phillips lives and works in London, England and his work is exhibited and collected worldwide.
