An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Phil Delisle.

Statement

Phil Delisle is a painter and writer exploring various methods for representing artistic process. His works explore the conventions of framing; often having many paintings within paintings. In recent works he has sought to leave evidence of process by allowing areas to be fragmented or suggestive.

His short stories and fictional essays feature a cast of recurring characters including fictional theorists, invented artists, characters that his characters have made up, and himself. Philip studied in the Bachelor of Arts program at the University of Waterloo and the Master of Fine Art program at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. He was recently awarded the Joseph Plaskett Award and was a finalist in the 14th Annual RBC Canadian Painting Competition.”
