Soft Focus Oil Paintings by Philip Barlow

  • Posted by SHFT on June 26, 2012 in Art
  • We see a lot of the blurred, soft focus aesthetic in filmmaking and photography these days, but not so much in painting. Here, South African artist Philip Barlow, whose work we spotted at This Isn't Happiness, pulls it off to incredible effect.

    In the series, titled simply "The City," Barlow depicts hazy, washed out figures and landmarks in the city, nicely capturing the heat island effect experienced in the summer.

    The artist says that he "hints at forms and shapes in his work, not all the information is given, therefore allowing the viewer an avenue to create their own stories and meanings."
