Visual artist Philip Govedare captures mountainous landscape views in his series of painted works entitled "Excavation". The painter describes his work as "a response to the landscape we inhabit with all its complexity and layered meanings."

His pieces evoke a sense of calm and stoic beauty that is found within our natural environment. Mixing gorgeously blended tones, the artist captures the light, color, texture and atmosphere of his illustrated landscape locations.

Using an oil-based medium, Philip Govedare creates memorable and visually striking art works that draw the viewer in. The paintings are abstract at first glance but transform into distant mountainous landscapes upon closer inspection. The painter finds beauty in nature and mimics the strokes and colors created by mother earth in his own depictions.
