Philip Buller’s More is a product of the artist’s unique and involved layering process. He uses color in a striking way, with bold slashes and fearless vibrancy. At first glance, the painting appears completely abstract — only after closer inspection does an ambiguous, hazy ‘negative’ appear in the work. The work’s striking allusion to film negatives and printmaking expand what’s expected of its oil medium – The unfinished, industrial quality of More invites the viewer to go deeper, exploring time and memory through poetic and enigmatic storytelling.
