‘Whether spectacularly beautiful or hideous in import, images and events before the eye are often unseen. Blindness is inherent in humans. The question is whether it be inherited or accidental; chosen, denied or desired?’
A scotoma is an area of partial alteration in the visual field, a literal blind spot. Metaphorically and in the figurative senses it is a gap not in the visual function but in the mind’s perception, cognition or world-view. In Medieval Latin it stems from the Greek ‘skótōma’, – giddiness, from ‘skotoun’ – to make dark or from ‘skotos’ – darkness.
Munro’s images conspire within the actions of the participants to ask that you look again and rephrase the questions of what lies before you. Within the parameters of a work by Philip Ross Munro you are never alone.
Munro is a graduate of the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, d.s.a.p. He is an engineer, designer, painter and photographer. To view his works, visit www.philiprossmunro.com.
