Philip Hogben

I paint anything around me that takes my interest, usually on a small scale, as directly as possible. Choosing a viewpoint and exploiting the pictorial space, sometimes lifting the ground plane towards the picture plane enhances the sense of immediacy and surprise, and facilitates interest in the handling of light, colour and surface.
