Rachel Phillips
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick

Media:Painting;


ARTIST STATEMENT: I start a painting as if I were doodling. I draw an expression that finds its form in something such as a cartoon face or a hat. The emotional quality that comes from that dictates the next thing I draw and the next. The way the medium and color is handled is based on how I see the object and what I want to say about it. My process is instinctive and changes subject and focus throughout the course of the painting. Painting a hat leads to drawing a feather that also functions as an arch and a frame for the image. An eyeball becomes a flower and visa versa. Back and forth, observation, memory and expression exist simultaneously.
