Philip Muirden

I do not follow the fashionable trend of extreme specialisation with a recognisable brand image. I am compelled to work from three main sources.

a: the celebration of the purely retinal (boats, people, decay)

b: the use of the myth and legend to underline the contemporary relevance

c: drawings and statements motivated by human relationships in a political framework

I maintain the need to commune with both visual reality and surrealism.
