'Lake View' 24in x 24in Inspired by the beauty of lake areas in Canada and USA but not a specific place. High temperature ceramic porcelain underglaze.

I had an amazing couple of weeks as a visiting artist in Miaoli, Taiwan. A beautiful location with lots of wonderful friends. It is most famous for wood firing kilns and their natural Miaoli clay. I was inspired to create several new hand built ceramic pieces with impressions of the local flora. I will post later when they are fired. I highly recommend you to visit and I will go back again next year.

I will be travelling over the next few months and have a major show in New York City 2019. Hope to see you. My schedule is as follows: September 15th :10 International Avanos Applied Ceramic Symposium 'Art Wall Ceramics'. Turkey October 27th, International Heritage Fair, Paris France (Louvre) November 10th, International Ceramic Art Seminar and Symposium, Miaoli, Taiwan April 25th, 2019. ArtNY International Art Exhibition. New York, USA

The artist -Philip Read

Master of Fine Arts: Studio Painting and Critical Theory... Bachelor of Fine Arts: Interdisciplinary Arts... Chemical Engineering, minor in Microbiology, Diploma... Studio member: Tile Council of America

I am a Symbolist painter. The paintings are composed of a series of symbolic images that evoke an aesthetic emotion and reflect social/cultural narratives.

The seeds of my artistic journey were planted early in my life living in the south of England. I travel to many countries in search of the natural beauty in this world. The mountains, oceans, rivers, and waterfalls still inspire my compositions. Now my work explores the beauty of the human body combined with landscapes. For me, these are the best of my inspired observations in life; the human body and Nature. The two subjects are a unified series of lines and compositions that create a natural balance of aesthetic beauty. I construct these compositions within a matrix of color fields, light, sound and poetry that explore the multiple layers of the human experience. My materials are ceramic porcelain with colored underglaze painting with colored glazes.

Artistic creation requires not only technique but also the need for the expression of ideas, concepts and aesthetics.
