  • Catalogue Essay

    “Best known for his discomfortingly frontal close-ups of women who look like fashion models, Phillips adopted a photographic approach to painting at the same time that fashion magazines began to incorporate the impressionistic, painterly style (and services) of photographers such as Jack Pierson and Wolfgang Tillmans in their fashion spreads…Phillip’s work performs an almost classical function in this sense, memorializing the unattainable standards of beauty ushered in by this new era in fashion.” V. Breuvart, Vitamin P: New Perspectives in Painting, 2002, London, p. 248
