Philip Mead

Artist, Graphic designer

My painting is concerned with memory and the experience of place. A particular location or landscape is usually the starting point. The paintings use mixed media and found materials as well as utilising chance and change. I am currently exploring aspects of weather/climate as part of the painting process.
