Philip Colbert’s works are wildly exuberant attempts to update the practice of collage for the internet age. Colbert’s oil paintings challenge and toy with the viewer’s cultural vocabulary - superimposing commonplace, banal objects onto painted faces and merging portraiture with popular culture in a Magritte-like fashion. He participated in Unit London’s Summer Group Show Looking For U, exploring the relationship between fine art and digital communication, examining how our exposure and obsession with mass media has affected our consumption of imagery. The exhibition featured Colbert’s paintings, two sculptural works based around his lobster motif, a cheese grater and a neon light piece. His works have been featured in major institutions around the world, including at Saatchi Gallery, Tate Modern, and the Van Gogh Museum, as well as in art fairs such as Art Miami and Art16.
