An Interview with Richard Phillips by Alisa Birenbaum and Katerina Llanes

To all appearances, Richard Phillips loves Pop culture, and Pop culture loves him back. He paints billboard-sized portraits of pretty girls, pictures sourced in the popular press, from vintage fashion magazines and newspapers to pornography. Over the years -- Phillips was born in Massachusetts in 1963 and has been showing his work since the early 1990s -- his repertoire expanded to include images of male celebrity (Tom Cruise), haute bourgeois style (Valentino), state power (George W.C. Bush), spiritualism (Deepak Chopra) and unalloyed cuteness (a white Persian kitten).
