Phil McKay returns to the Corner Gallery Stanmore with a new display of artworks. Exhibition titled “Forty x 40” will commence on the 3rd August, with opening drinks on Saturday, 5th August from 2pm.
Phil McKay is a Sydney based artist who works in acrylics and charcoal. He undertook 18 months study at the Julian Ashton Art School, followed by a number of short courses at the National Art School. Although Phil initially looked at traditional landscapes for inspiration, his current focus is on the urban environment.
The urban landscape is a reflection of his childhood passion of wandering the streets of his neighbourhood and country towns where his relatives lived. He has a fascination with the angles roofs create against one another, and against the sky, and the unusual shapes and spaces created by streets and pathways.
Phil is an Associate Member of the Royal Art Society of NSW and a member of the St George and Randwick Art Societies. In 2014 Phil leased a studio in an artist complex in St Peters enabling expansion of ideas, experimentation in new styles and at-hand support and critique.
