Contemporary realist painter Philip Kilmore's works are characterised by his assured technique, meticulous attention to detail and choice of subject matter.Philip's paintings create a sense of intimacy with the viewer - one can readily imagine oneself in the scene, and it is this ability to enter into Philip's paintings that is so often commented on by viewers. To be engrossed by the sense of being there evokes a feeling of timelessness and tranquillity, of the world standing still.
Philip's paintings are generally devoid of people, but have a reference to man, often reflecting on our intervention with the landscape and the precariousness of those endeavours.
Philip is a largely self-taught Artist. Important influences have been Andrew Wyeth, Mark Cross, Tomas Sanchez and Jeffrey Smart.

His works can be found in collections both here in New Zealand and around the world.
