“My interest is in the emotional and human complexities within life and how to express through paint and paper my own personal experiences. As an artist it is important to trust my intuition when making artistic decisions as I create piece of artwork. Believing that we all experience a common range of emotions in life, I attempt to convey, in abstract terms, these universal experiences.”
Artists Serving Artists – Phil Saxon was a sales associate at Blick Art Materials in Milwaukee, WI. His mixed media paintings consist of a modernist style with layers of acrylic, ink and watercolor paint on paper and canvas. He is not afraid to paint over an existing painting to achieve a new painting. Phil’s subject matter is often figurative and of ambiguous gender and his paintings express an internal self-discovery.
