How often did you see a friend or colleague passing by without greeting you? How often did you feel sad because of that? They are not rude or unpolite they may be shortsighted people. Philip Barlow is a gifted painter from South Africa who showed the world through the eyes of shortsighted people. After having discovered these paintings, we finally understood these colleagues. The oil paintings will shift you into the fantastic world, where only silhouettes and colors are marked.
The world, where the brand of your clothes does not matter, where a little bit messy hair is not noticed, the world, where people don’t greet you by your appearance. Philip gives huge attention to lights and shadows. Only by working with lights and shadows, he gets the blurred effect seen by the defective eyes. Most of Philip’s works are shown at international exhibitions. People are in love with the harmony of colors he presents. The ones who are shortsighted won’t observe anything extraordinary in his works, they see the world like that every day. However, Philip opened a whole new world to the others.
