Wave 7 Gallery

Philip Lyons

I use subtle colour and strong pattern in my compositions – locking them together to make a firm structure. I pay attention to the surface of the paintings to create areas that have a sense of history (telling a story).  There are accents of strong colour to anchor the composition.

I look for modest, everyday events and views, such as looking out from a window, light passing over a field, a glimpse of the sea over a hedge and shadows of trees stretching across a field. I often use a grid structure to start a painting, sometimes remaining visible, sometimes hidden in the background and I return to places I know well, to look for natural frameworks and grids, such as windows, doorways, shadows and shapes of objects in rooms.
