Shannon Phillips is an extremely gifted, successful and influential South African Abstract artist.
Shannon is at her happiest when she is in the sanctity of her studio with a paint brush in her hand and an enormous canvas awaiting her magical touch. With breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean, Shannon finds the inspiration to create her masterpieces.
Abstract painting is my passion! I love the different textures, love spilling the paint and adding words to my work. "She adds, "The physical action of pouring the paint, just the doing of it and creating a work with balance and form elates me."
Shannon specialises in creating artwork that is simplistic, modernistic and functional.
Shannon uses colours of subtle hues. Subjects of various shapes, flowers and landscapes are chosen within which she embeds the shimmering engraved metal pieces. Shannon enthuses, "I love the etched look and I have a thing about bringing light into my work.
Inspired at an early age to be creative, her passion for art has continued to evolve and through experimenting in various mediums Shannon has achieved a signature style.
Having had numerous triumphant exhibitions and exhibiting her works at many galleries, Shannon's art pieces are much sought after locally and internationally.
