I’ve only recently discovered the work of Cape Town based artist Philip Barlow. He is known for his luminous and ethereal ‘bokeh’ style oil on linen paintings. Just beautiful.
“The figures in the landscape serve as carriers and reflectors of the light that falls upon them. Bathed in the luminosity, it is my hope that they would become more beautiful. To me, light is the ultimate subject because it embodies the pinnacle of all reality.”
