Brendan Jon Philip

Mint Gallery presents 'Form and Viod', the latest work from Dunedin based artist Brendan Jon Philip.

Form and Void presents a study in contrasts by staking out a liminal territory between cadence and dissonance, presence and absence, potentiality and actuality. While eschewing iconographic elements, the work of this collection continues to engage with wider thematic narratives concerning nature of creation, being, apocalypse and redemption.

Brendan studied at Whitecliffe College of Art and Design and Elam School of Fine Arts, as well as receiving Distinction in Film and Media Studies at the University of Otago. Brendan is currently a practicing artist, engaged with experimental aesthetics in a variety of projects, spaces, and media throughout New Zealand.
