Lee Phillips is an illustrator who lives and works in Narberth. In this his first exhibition at The Last Gallery Lee shows his continuous line drawings and 2 new paintings, as well as a selection of sketchbooks.
The rooftops he records in this series often trace the last line between our bustling social environment and its serene expanse above. By studying and recording the summit of this landscape he finds tranquillity in the busiest of cities. This sense of peace, and often solitude, is depicted in his work through the negative spaces surrounding his subjects.
The compositions Lee chooses to record are often areas that for whatever reasons generally go un-noticed. They may be views from areas of limited access, have the misfortune of being sited opposite the V & A Museum or are simply neglected because people just don’t look up.
Lee completed his General Illustration degree in Swansea, an MA in Visual Communication and a PGCE in Art & Design, graduating in 2005. Lee has lived and worked in Carmarthenshire for past ten years and is currently living in Llanmill.
The exhibition runs each weekend from Saturday 4th June to Sunday 19th June.
