“DARK IMPRESSIONS” – 19th January – St. Louis

Sculpture and Photography 
Philip Hitchcock

DI-1PHD Gallery showcases the work of gallery owner and artist Philip Hitchcock. Challenging and compelling, the life-size figures by Philip Hitchcock merge fantasy and reality to create powerful sculptural forms, evoking themes of heroism and human frailty.  Often inspired by mythological icons, the hyper-realistic forms, which are created from multiple castings of live models, are layered and embellished with accouterments.

Free public reception on
Saturday from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. 

The artist will be on hand to sign copies of his book.

Thank you to everyone who visited this important exhibition and donated to
Tom of Finland Foundation.


“The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don’t want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual.”
– Tom of Finland

Work available by Tom of Finland.

“One only has to look at the recent phd gallery showing of original drawings by iconic artist Tom of Finland to see the effect the gallery has had on the local art scene and the commuinity at large. Showcasing provocative and explicit images of powerful and proud gay men, the show at once provoked and pushed the status quo while also empowering and engaging the gay community  in a way that few other local exhibitions have”.
