ABOUT THE WORK
In his hyperrealistic paintings, Brad Phillips delivers humorous yet haunting vignettes that navigate complex and often melancholic glimpses into the human condition. By exploring nuanced themes like hypocrisy, sex, and addiction with heartbreaking detail and subtle satire, Phillips creates an access point to otherwise uncomfortable truths. In our new print edition by Phillips, To Do List, life gets equalized. A hand-scrawled numerated list, the hallmark of the mundane, is elevated and transformed: pen in notebook becomes paint on canvas, which transmutes into our archival print edition. Daily hierarchies of priorities are leveled with a realistic glare, demanding an unfettered exposé into cycles of thought. The image is frank, obvious, and magic: by providing the feeling of raw autobiographical honesty, Phillips' work remains both steeped and guarded from personal truth, transforming himself and his audiences into voyeurs.
Brad Phillips' solo exhibition What You Do When You Don't Go Outside was held at Harper's Apartment in 2019. Other solo exhibitions include Bullshit Both Walks and Talks at Allen & Eldridge (New York), First Last Chance at Division Gallery (Toronto), and Honeymoon Rehearsal organized by Bjarne Melgaard at Rod Bianco Gallery (Oslo) among many others. His recent two-person exhibition with Cristine Brache was held at Anat Egbi Gallery (Los Angeles) and in 2020 he was featured in To Paint is to Love Again curated by Olivier Zahm at Nino Mier Gallery (Los Angeles).
