PHILIP JOSEPH

Landscape painter and pastel artist Philip Joseph is an art professor who finds inspiration in the scenes near his home in Oxford, Ohio, and in rural Michigan. Joseph creates photo-realist scenes through a precise painting technique. He doesn't people his landscapes but allows the viewer to enter the space and make it his or her own.

 

 

I am continually searching for combinations of light, color, and space that can be translated into a painting. These elements, along with a sense of peace, order, and beauty, contain the essence of what I wish to express in my landscapes. In the studio I synthesize these elements into a painting structure that makes sense on its own terms. The final appearance of the painting at times closely resembles the source and at times evolves into something quite different. Paintings such as these are a re-creation of a place and a moment, and it is my hope that the work communicates to the viewer some of the visual beauty that delights my eye and feeds my soul.
