Lawrence Philip, 16 Times 8 Equals One, mixed media, 2016

Lockhart Gallery is please to present recent mixed media paintings by Lawrence Philip that include unusual materials like Styrofoam, molding paste, and plaster. Philip has been looking at signage, large and small billboards of different configurations. After experiencing many hurricanes, floods and tornados in Florida and Georgia he looks at the debris left behind and reimagines it. Philip is giving new form and meaning to those remains. He lavishes new color on found materials creating new constructions.

He is interested in the intersection of painted relief elements with decorative elements. His methodology is abstraction expressionism using the actual as a foundation for highly imaginative outcomes. Philip has exhibited his art work across Florida and in New York and Colorado including Morean Arts Center in Saint Petersburg, Mary McLeod Bethune Performing Arts Center and Visual Arts Gallery in Daytona Beach, Cooperstown Art Center, in New York, and the prestigious Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado.

All exhibits are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery. For more information contact Lori Houtz at 585-245-5841 or Cynthia Hawkins at 585-245-5813.
