Philip Gray

Philip Gray collection from Artworx Gallery

Philip’s passion for art is equalled only by his passion for exploration and discovery. Not for him a tranquil day spent painting in his studio; rather he is a man of action, interacting fully with the natural world that he portrays. His ‘extreme art’, painted in unexpected and sometimes dangerous locations, has won him a unique reputation as an artist and adventurer; Everest base Camp, 60 feet beneath the surface of shark infested waters, the rain forest of Borneo, deep in the caves and atop the volcanoes of Iceland, …his expeditions are legendary, and his innovative artwork has won him a unique position in the international art world.

But wherever he goes on the planet, it is the South West coast of Ireland that he always returns to, and his peaceful depictions of the shores and harbours of home provide us with the opportunity to escape the chaos of day to day life and appreciate the wonder of the natural world as interpreted by a master of the genre.
