DESCRIPTION

Philip Munoz

13 Jun - 29 Jun 2013

Philip Munoz is particularly concerned with the idea of beauty through transformation. This interest is channeled into his stylish portraits of attractive young women, adorned with tattoos and piercings. His fascination for city life is exemplified by his exceptional still-lives that cleverly capture the seduction and glamour of high-street window displays. A voyeuristic and passing gaze into a shop window, meticulously rendered in oil. These depictions of mass-produced objects of desire play on the relationship between commodity fetishism and hyperrealist painting.
