Philippa Cannan trained in Fine Art painting at University of Brighton, tutored by Andrzej Jackowski. Graduating in 2010. She has already had two successful solo shows and her work has been exhibited in many group shows and art fairs. Her work is held in private collections nationally and in Europe. Philippa had a painting selected for The 18th National Open Ar...t Exhibition 2014 at Somerset House.
She writes: 'I hope to create a sense of timelessness in my work and that each painting conveys a feeling of its own reality: a felt or imagined space, to which the viewer may respond. Animals, perhaps, symbolise life’s deepest energies: instinctual life. Through the process of painting, glimpses are taken into an arena of day-dream, memory and reverie; what Freud described as ‘free-floating attention’.
