Soft Focus

I can't get enough of these out-of-focus paintings by Philip Barlow. In a world of hyper-realism and high-definition his oil paintings are a breath of fresh air that seem to capture the fleeting impressions we gather throughout a day. In the artist's own words Barlow offers, "hints at forms and shapes in his work, not all the information is given, therefore allowing the viewer an avenue to create their own stories and meanings."
