Ambiguity is the quality of being open to more than one interpretation; inexactness, uncertainty.
To move beyond the limitations of "knowing" into the realm of discovery requires imagination. The first step to imagination is being able to set aside our assumptions and embrace uncertainty.
In Philip's small mixed media constructions, the distinction between "art" and "frame" has been deliberately called into question, offering a simple example of ambiguity and an opportunity to exercise the imagination.
Philip was born in Louisville, Kentucky and studied painting, printmaking and ceramics at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. He began a career in graphic arts after moving to Atlanta, Georgia, eventually relocating to Mobile, Alabama. Years later he returned to Lexington, and began shifting his focus back to fine art.
Philip has received regional, national and international awards for fine art and illustration in both digital and traditional media and currently lives and works in Louisville, Kentucky.
