Biography

Philippa Anderson's work is an emotional response to the subject of ruins, investigating experiences associated with the passage of time, decay and declining industry. Anderson draws metaphorical parallels between the ruination of fragmented, architectural forms and the experiences of human existence.


Artist Statement

Her work is driven by processes and materials. Central to this is intuitive mark making enhanced by the action of applying paint directly to the canvas using her hands as a tool. Working on paper and canvas, layering applications of ink and gesso and acrylic paint, Anderson creates a palimpsest of fading marks and imagery alluding to dilapidated architecture. In a recent interview she recalls growing up in the North East of England in the 1970s where economic decline pervaded daily life. Anderson remarks,“images of abandoned factories and declining industry surrounded me, seeping into my subconscious, working intuitively allows me to draw on internalised imagery, producing work without any visual references.The paring back of recognisable forms offers the observer evocative fragments of strangely familiar narratives.”
