Frederick Phillips – Acava Studios: Spode Works

Frederick Phillips

Born in Stoke-on-Trent in 1953, Frederick Phillips is a painter for today who uses the techniques of the past to create the masterpieces of the future. Dedicated to the craft and tradition of oil-painting, his atmospheric paintings are like half-remembered dream images, glimpsed briefly as we awaken. As Frederick has said of his work: “Originally I was inspired by the Surrealists, and even today my paintings are not like realistic portraits of the world about me. My work is about memory; I don’t paint what I see, but the memory of what I have seen”
