The local environment and beautiful scenery of the area is the inspiration for most of his artwork.

I feel it is important for me to base my work around where I live and how I feel about a particular place … and while my work originates from what I experience and know, over time my work is also increasingly becoming more about a deliberately realized reality that is more concerned with visual arguments than factual reality.

Philip Maxwell has held many highly successful solo exhibitions and has also contributed to numerous group shows. His work can be found in both public and private collections here in New Zealand and many private collections overseas.  (courtesy of the artist)
