Philip Kilmore

Philip Kilmore is a contemporary realist landscape artist. His works are sought-after by collectors in New Zealand and around the world, and are in private collections in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Germany and Australia.

Philip's works are characterised by his assured technique, meticulous attention to detail and choice of subject matter. Through his paintings, Philip celebrates the ordinary, using the landscape and simple everyday subjects as metaphors for our place in the world.

The Kaipara has always been a source of inspiration for Philip and a favourite subject in his work. Philip moved from Auckland to the Rodney area ten years ago to be closer to the rural landscape that he paints.  The Kaipara is an important part of that landscape and appears consistently in works which reflect his love of this beautiful, varied and timeless harbour.

These latest works for sale from Philip are scenes from Northland where Philip now lives.
