WELCOME TO THE SWAGLANDS
I am an artist and writer with a focus on the power of imagination and story to mobilise social change.
My aim is to cultivate an awareness of environmental and social issues and activate peoples' sense of responsibility through fantasy.
From the shelter of the imaginary haven of The Swaglands – a wild place of renegade vegetation, environmental salvation and dream pursuit – Philly’s work explores the power of the imagination to connect us to environmental awareness and to permit emotional and social well-being. Inventing scenarios and characters that exist as both an entry point for investigating environmental and social issues and as an aesthetic imaginative experience, Philly’s work constantly plays with and tests the crossover between the imagined and the real; the truly perceived and the prejudged; fact or fabrication?
