Realist landscape artist
Phillip Edwards is an artist living and working in Bullarto Victoria in the vibrant arts community of Daylesford. West Gippsland born, from childhood he’s had an affinity and inquisitiveness for the natural environment. “I revel in the all-encompassing, visceral experience of being in the outdoors.”
His artistic practice started at 14 years of age with his first oil painting, continued through studies at the Victorian College of the Arts in his late teens, majoring in painting. He’s maintained his painting practice for over 30 years and expanded into sculptural works with found objects, steel and timber. Be it painting or sculpture, his works have a natural aesthetic that connects him to the natural world.
