Lawrence Philp makes abstract paintings and mixed media constructions. The work is painterly and expressive and the compositions seem to evolve according to Philp's process and his reactions to that process.
Philp's work was recently included in exhibitions at the Mary McLeod Bethune Performing Arts Center and Visual Arts Gallery in Daytona Beach, FL.  Recently, he exhibited paintings in I Kan Do Dat, a group exhibition featuring 80-90 artists at three gallery spaces in Chelsea and Brooklyn with Philps' work being displayed at the Skylight Gallery in Bedford Stuyvesant.
