Philip Braham

Philip Braham is a Scottish artist whose paintings and photographs emerge from the Northern European engagement with landscape as a metaphor for the human condition. Recent projects reflect on the temporal nature of our existence through personal recollection and collective history, set within the slowly evolving landscape that bears us forward. Fidelity to experience is fundamental to his practice, and this brings a poetic grace to his technical mastery of oil painting and silver-based photography.

Braham's paintings and photographs are held in many public and private collections and art foundations. Among the awards received are the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy Guthrie Award for painting, and the Royal Scottish Academy Morton Award for lens-based work. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Roger Billcliffe Gallery, Glasgow, Raab Gallery Berlin, The Scottish Gallery Edinburgh, and at the Royal Scottish Academy for the Edinburgh International Festival contribution in 2010.
