by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp

Richard Phillips makes jpeg art -- that is, imagery that looks absolutely fantastic when transferred digitally from gallery to collector, curator, critic or magazine art director. The paintings themselves are enormous, and there is no denying the fact that images of bare-breasted babes and Nazi insignia still pack a wallop in a media-glutted world. In fact, this is partly what the work is about, the backbreaking effort to make "paintings as such" while burdened with a head full of Yale-induced Postmodern critical theory.
