The Body

Philippe is drawn to unusual subjects, often mysterious or biological and frequently on the edge of scientific discovery. DNA is one example which spawned a series of ‘Sex Chemistry' pieces exhibited in 2006 by London 's FarmiloFiumano gallery.

Philippe conjures images from observing correlations between microscopic details in the human body and telescopic images in the Universe. Exposure to molecular photographs of different forms of life, and telescopic images brought to Earth from the depths of distant galaxies blend together, trapped inside Philippe's head. Completed works often display a quality of familiarity reminiscent of detail influenced by the subconscious.
