PHILLIP FAULKNER

Collage is at the heart of my practice. My work employs appropriated elements married with self-generated imagery. Drawn line, painted mark, printed book, cut paper and projected light are loosely categorized under a formal language, end employed fluidly throughout my work. Though varied in aesthetic and technique, my work aspires toward a visual allure, while embracing sentiment. Inspiration is documented, transformed and re-presented, while the pursuit is always something “new”.
