Richard Phillips

November 17, 2016 — February 25, 2017
Brussels

For his first solo exhibition with the gallery, American artist Richard Phillips presents a new body of paintings based on Fascist era Roman sculptures and the artwork of Cy Twombly.

The sculptural images are sourced from the artist’s photos of the Palazzo Della Civiltà and the Foro Italico. Using a vertical halftone graphic image, the painted wax oil emulsion paintings physically reconstruct in optical color the anti-modernist sculptures intended to honor Rome's neo-classical past.

The other series comes from close ups of Cy Twombly's Roman Salalah paintings of 2005/07 and his Final paintings of 2012. The compositions are inspired by the detailed documentary images found in artists catalogs designed to show mastery.
