Matt Phillips' works often employ fundamental elements of painting: simple shapes, modulated values, and color relationships. These rather rudimentary components are combined and remixed to produce unexpected outcomes. Color, shape, mark, and form engage one another in both strange and familiar ways, becoming tense, humorous, quirky, and ultimately meaningful.
