Philip Barlow's works are elaborations of images, mostly of nocturnal cities, that make them appear to be seen by a myopic eye. They are on display at "BUGNO ART GALLERY" through Oct. 30.
One can easily test it by looking through a positive lens; reality breaks down and colors take on blurred hues and distorted shapes. Barlow's work is a quest to capture images that tend toward abstraction while retaining a hyper-realistic, plastic fluidity.
"I seek the capture of the moment, that millisecond of time when everything aligns perfectly: form, light and color come together in all their complexity. A perfect symphony. "
