Richard Phillips: Early Works on Paper

Published by Holzwarth Publications.
Text by Linda Yablonsky.

The years 1993 and 1994 were bum years for Richard Phillips. Creative years too, since that was when he made the 30-odd drawings in this portfolio. With the air so cold and the heat not working and the rent going unpaid for eight months, Phillips, drawing in his kitchen, conjured one image after another: a homeless man is burned alive by a thug; a deranged blonde cuddles with a white rabbit, certain they must be sisters; a monumental god carved into a temple at Angkor Wat mirrors the face of Alice Cooper--two gods in one! Phillips' sources were discarded newspapers, but if you look behind the mottled surfaces the pictures really derive from the conflicted state of his soul.
Each of these drawings is a complete work; none were intended only as studies. "They were meant to be entertaining," Phillips tells author Linda Yablonsky, "but they also pushed me to go farther and farther." Ultimately, these drawings gave Phillips the freedom to paint. What they give us is the power to see through the dark.

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Franck Gautherot. Text by Liam Gillick, Kim Gordon, Karl Holmquist.

This new monograph features work by the admired New York painter, Richard Phillips, whose brash, often pornographic paintings borrow from fashion, art, the news and other graphic media. Equally apt to take his motifs from glossy magazines as from art historical or kitsch icons, he blends Pop art with a contemporary critique of the representation which emerged in the "Picture Group" generation of the 1980s. Richly illustrated, the book features recent work as well as essays by musician Kim Gordon and artist Liam Gillick.

Richard Phillips

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Artwork by Richard Phillips. Edited by Yilmaz Dziewior.

Richard Phillips makes fairly realistic oil paintings of imagery borrowed from pornographic magazines, fashion rags, contemporary artworks, newspapers, and other common visual media. Bold, heavy, and unabashedly lacking in subtlety, Phillips's paintings splash nudie shots of spread-eagled women, head shots of fashion models in bizarre sunglasses and headgear, kitschy furballs of kitten cuteness, and details of art pieces like Jeff Koons's Michael Jackson (sans Bubbles) sculpture across gargantuan canvases, inevitably stunning the viewer for the time it takes to absorb such a wide swath of appropriated appropriation. Exceptional works include a spurting crotch shot entitled Negation of the Universe as a riff on Courbet's Origin of the World, and a horizontal portrait of President George Bush, bordered on either side by thick panels of hot pink, creating a brash new flag for the United States that is strangely reminiscent of Canada's.
