Ms. Phillips goes on to write, “The artist’s use of vibrant hues, bold compositions and animated brushwork reflect his joie de vivre. His dynamic contemporary landscape and abstract paintings celebrate the positive abundance that exists in the idealized natural world. He transforms his subjects to transcend their representational characteristics in favor of igniting the viewer’s emotional response to them.”
