Quantus Gallery London presents the solo exhibition Introspecting of the artist from Birmingham Mike Philp.
Introspective presents a series of achromatic and geometric multi-media compositions that seek to explore the depths of emotion, mind, and nature – giving a new perspective to the way in which we view art.
Conceived from the timeless work of Michelangelo and Bernini, Mike takes the stylised perfection of their works and others, to overlay a geometric pattern constructed from a range of perfect lines and angles to explore an individual depth that gives light to the omnipresent and consistent existence of geometry and shape in nature.
Like the artists who influenced his works, he is on a quest to create art which transcends the centuries. It is with that thought that he established what he describes as Geo-Realism.
By overlaying a geometric pattern to the base of his medium, he seeks to fuse seamless and ornate patterns with valued realist works to demonstrate the deep harmonic connection that geometry shares with emotion, mind, and nature. The result is a metamorphic new variety of composition.
Mike’s artistic journey has led him to develop a unique style called “Geo Realism”, a harmonious blend of realism and geometric designs. He draws inspirations from the omnipresent world of geometry, recognising its significance in our daily lives.
Having later become renowned for his experience as an award-winning tattoo artist, Mike uses his unique skills with the needle and applies them to his art. By utilising achromatic spray paint, acrylics and even tattoo ink on a natural canvas of wood, he aligns his exploration of emotion, mind, and nature with the very composition he presents.
