Philip Boven

Artists in Residence
02.01.2019 - 31.03.2019

Lives and works in Amsterdan, Netherlands. Boven has come to Despina to develop on themes of learning, failure and success in art making. Experimentation and method itself act as the starting point for this exploration – often also showing the work behind the work in order to make the final realisation more accessible to the viewer. 

Deliberate iteration of both figurative and non-figurative subject matter are key motif within his work, acting to help organise the exploration process. Fast drying materials like acrylic and ink, as well as the paper and drawing materials for their traditional associations with preparatory sketches or studies, are also considered mediums that align with this exploration.
