Phil Hargreaves


 From time to time. I return to my love of creating paper collages, usually to reflect social or environmental issues.
One of my collages "The Planet strikes back" was selected as one of 60 winners in the Covid Dreams competition organised by Artavita, based in Santa Barbara, California and was also selected for the Ferens Exhibition in Hull.  My collage of acrylic paintings entitled "Lives Matter" was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2021 and last week I donated it to Welcome House in Hull, a centre for refugees and asylum seekers. 
I am currently working on a series of abstract and semi-abstract acrylic paintings, based on the natural world and in particular my walks in Dalby Forest.
