Philip Harding
Richland, Washington

Philip creates from his home, which he designed and built himself in a small Washington town. His work focuses on the juxtaposition of linear and nonlinear modes of perception and thought. Philip’s highly geometric compositions combine the rigidity of grids with the fluidity of spheres. Stimulating both sides of the brain - both creative and logical - is the intention of the work. Philip finds more inspiration in books than artists; he is heavily influenced by the writings of Christopher Alexander and James L. Acord’s The Nuclear Artist. Philip has been creating for decades, but in the last several years has developed a technique of preparing linen with pumice to create tooth that allows him to draw with the vibrancy and durability of a painting. “My process is a combination of focused improvisation followed by hours of careful craftsmanship,” says the artist. He contemplates life, consciousness, and the state of being while he works.
