From one perspective Philip Petrie‘s paintings look like Earth viewed from above.  From another point of view they look like the maps of madness.  “I work automatically like the surrealists and the abstract expressionists,” the artist explains.   His paintings, all oil on canvas, intrigue the mind and delight the eye.  They have that rare combination of scholarship and humor.  “All Over the Map” refers in part to his eclectic style, but also to the fact that he has painted his way across the country, from Rhode Island, throughout the Midwest to California. Petrie further states “The forms I create are generally organic, coming from both nature and my inner self.”
