‘The Dialogues’ find their beginnings in ink drawings executed by Philip Ross Munro in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Over the years, they have become a distinctive narrative form in the Artist’s repertoire of channeling and storytelling.
”People often engage with these images in a gleeful and inquisitive fashion. They may question what they see and ask how these works of arts are created. While the images may appear simple in nature, the answer is more complex.
Diane Arbus was quoted saying: ‘the most important thing to know is that you never know’.
This is the case in much of Philip Ross Munro's production. In his words:
The initial concept is followed by a process wherein the mind and the body harmonize on their way to discovery and completion of new imagery. As the ink hits the surface of the paper or canvas, there is an immediate confluence of forces propelling the extension of thought or conversation into form.
The path in creation is not one mapped beneath the feet, but more similar to that of birds in flight. If I knew the outcome before I undertook the start then more than likely I would not embark.
The result may be sociological part dialogue, fable, parable, fantasy, or myth.”
