About the Artist:
Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Philip Gladstone now lives and works in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. A prolific and uniquely gifted painter, draughtsman and sculptor with stories to tell, passions to share and sometimes a protest to make, Philip Gladstone's layered, complex body of work best reveals its secrets when the pictures are seen grouped together according to the several major themes that the artist has pursued and evolved over his brief, still-new career.
As one pioneer among a generation of artists recognizing and embracing the new opportunities for artistic growth and self-empowerment brought about by the rapid evolution of the World Wide Web, since 2004 Philip Gladstone has independently created, exhibited and sold more than six thousand paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints directly to his collectors, exclusively online.
Dogbotz Boneyard recommends the giclee and iris prints of Philip Gladstone because of the thoughtful portrayal of his subjects in a still, contemplative style that evokes an intensely intimate sensation within the viewer. His subjects are encapsulated within a field of tranquil colors, yet often with a chiaroscuro effect. The subtle meditative postures of the male figures in his paintings capture a sexual vulnerability unique to masculinity. And so, from our Dogbotz Boneyard Gallery of Art for your own personal collection, we present Philip Gladstone’s Dusk, which has been hand-numbered as the fifth print out of a total set of fifteen.
