The shapes people make fascinate him and this is evident in his work. Whether this is a crowd of commuters bustling across a station concourse or a solitary figure engrossed in their own thoughts. These paintings capture the essence of the moment, the spirit of human presence and the space they occupy. Phil Tyler manages to achieve a balance between the opposing forces of gesture and description.
