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.”
Phill Hopkins was born in Hartcliffe in Bristol. He was educated to at Filton College in Bristol and Goldsmiths College, London. He now lives and works in London and Leeds. Recent exhibitions include a solo show, ‘Place’, at the HoMA gallery, Leeds.
