Explorations of the house as form

Phill Hopkins is an English artist interested in exploring the form of the traditional house.

“Possibly the house motif that I have been using again is that of the house that I grew up in. It is more about the feel of that shape that I am interested in and that engages me. It is a motif that I have used before and it has reappeared again.
It is blank or silent and has the possibility to carry or hold; it is potent.
The motif is repeated over and over and over again, in drawings and in sculpture.”
