Overview

Phil Delisle is a painter and writer exploring various methods for representing artistic process. His works explore the conventions of framing; often having many paintings within paintings. In recent works he has sought to leave evidence of process by allowing areas to be fragmented or suggestive.

Philip studied in the Bachelor of Arts program at the University of Waterloo and the Master of Fine Art program at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. He was recently awarded the Joseph Plaskett Award and was a finalist in the 14th Annual RBC Canadian Painting Competition.
