  • Catalogue Essay

    "The perception of whether my male subjects are sexualized depends on one's predisposition. Paintings like Portrait of God, 1998, address male sexuality. My work reflects the proportional over-representation of the female body in art historical and advertising patterns. Even the way in which my paintings have been absorbed into the art media, has privileged the images of women over men, which parallels mainstream media's old bias' of heterosexist transmissions for the safeguarding of property legacy and real-estate control." - Richard Phillips
    (Interview with Richard Phillips, New Museum, Gagosian Gallery, New York, 2009)
