DSQ Event

'The Silent Artist': Patrick Phillips

'The Silent Artist': Patrick Phillips 


Patrick Phillips is a very accomplished painter from North West Queensland and Deaf Services is excited to be hosting an intimate session with him to find out more about his life, his art and how his deafness has influenced him.

Patrick will be speaking to community members at a FREE community talk during the Deaf Art Exhibition so come along to find out more and see a selection of his work that will be on display. 


While recovering from a motorcycle accident a friend gave Patrick a piece of masonite, brushes and oil paints and he has never looked back. 

His style and technique have continued to develop since his first oil painting of a gum tree at age 15, and Patrick has a list of achievements and accolades from competitions and exhibitions across Australia. 

In 2011, Patrick exhibited over 30 paintings at a solo exhibition in Toowomba titled 'Visions of Silence' and in the same year won Grand Champion at the Fraser Coast Show.

Patrick was a runner up at the Deaf Art Show hosted by Deaf Services in 2017 where he exhibited two paintings. Feedback from community members at the launch of the Deaf Art Show event were overwhelmingly positive, praising his technique and beautifully accurate reflections of Australian landscapes. 


Helen Bovey, Program Officer (Access) from Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) will be introducing Patrick Phillips and will be providing information about guided Auslan tours at QAGOMA and detailing upcoming exhibitions.
