Silhouette of Memories presents a collection of paintings by Bundjalung artist Michael Philp that explore personal history and the strong connections he has with family and friends.
“I grew up with a large extended family so the social and cultural connections run deep over many generations. I felt strongly about each painting and the emotional connections I had with everyone who was being depicted. I get to honour these people in some small way, some who are not with us anymore.”
This exhibition is the outcome of Tweed Regional Gallery’s inaugural Bundjalung award, awarded to Michael Philp as part of the 2022 Wollumbin Art Award.
A Tweed Regional Gallery initiative.
