Phillip Morrison's work generally concentrates on streetscapes and surf scenes from the west of Ireland. Strong shapes and colour are key signatures of his work which help to create interesting compositions and create a sense of movement. Another unique feature would be his treatment of the sky: often the sky in a painting has no physical relationship with the landscape below it. In his work he tries to bridge this by forcing a relationship between the two by use of lines that interweave between them. He finds that this gives a visual tempo to the piece.
“I enjoy the playfulness that occurs in my work, the actual process is as important as the finished piece. It’s very important that I enjoy the creating of the painting as I feel this reveals itself, the viewer can tell that I have had fun doing the painting.“ Phillip Morrison
