Phil Delisle Artist Talk at Forest City Gallery
A part of the Brenda Fuhrman Artist Talk Series. November 28th, 2012 from 7:00- 8:00 PM No Admission/Open to the Public
At Forest City Gallery, 258 Richmond Street, London, Ontario Philip Delisle is a painter and writer exploring various methods for representing artistic process. His works explore the conventions of framing; often having many paintings within paintings. In recent works he has sought to leave evidence of process by allowing areas to be fragmented or suggestive. His short stories and fictional essays feature a cast of recurring characters including fictional theorists, invented artists, characters that his characters have made up, and himself. Philip studied in the Bachelor of Arts program at the University of Waterloo and the Master of Fine Art program at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University.
Delisle won the 2012 Joseph Plaskett Painting award and is a finalist for the 2012 RBC Painting Competition.
