Philippe Halaburda is interested in the randomness of cities like NYC and their relationship to human experience. Based on emotions, feelings or memories from his direct experiences, his work delves into the complex undercurrents of intimate and collective relationships to the City. Halaburda's abstract paintings engage with the urban environment and call upon emotional framework as a construct to bring the viewer inside his or her own subconscious. The result is always an expression of mental processes related to that exact instant, by creating a unique artistic topography: Geographic Abstraction.
