Philip Clarke’s work is a study of the modern urban landscape, concentrating on mood and atmosphere in order to communicate the feeling of a specific time and place.

Clarke explores the dialogue between the natural and the manmade, observing how seemingly banal urban spaces are transformed by the transcendental effects of light and weather conditions.

These observations inform works which seek to capture fleeting moments in which even the most mundane aspects of the urban environment are imbued with a subtle beauty.
