Philip Cam

Philip Cam is a philosopher and author who has returned to Adelaide and to art after half a lifetime away. Trained at the South Australian School of Art, his paintings explore the relationship between people and place, attempting to capture how our experience and concerns are formed by the environment in which we live, just as it reflects them. Some of his works also refer to the world of art, including homage to artists of a metaphysical bent such as Magritte and de Chirico, and especially to his favourite locally born and bred painter, Jeffrey Smart.
