Richard Phillips enlarges images from marketing and celebrity culture to a monumental scale resulting in strikingly distinctive paintings. "Mirror" emphasizes the glossy, idealized glamour of a bygone age, when indulgence and frivolity ruled. A beautiful woman’s face fills the entirety of the mirror, contrasted with the wrinkled hand holding the circular reflection.
Richard Phillips received his BFA in painting from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston in 1984, and his MFA in painting from Yale University School of Art in 1986. He currently lives and works in New York.
