Philip Eglin's work engages knowingly with European traditions in ceramics and sculpture. He refers to representations of the female figure in art and Christian iconography such as the nude and Madonna and Child. The graffiti style imagery on this figure includes instructions from washing labels and drinks cartons; everyday symbols from consumer culture. His works reflect and comment on contemporary culture fusions of high art and popular culture.
