Artist Statement

Becky Eddy Phillips’ art wavers in leaps and falls between the introspective and intellectual realms, with dialogues in science, domesticity and feminism. Grounding herself firmly in the present, she experiments with installation and performance to represent the primitive within a  progressive contemporary plot. Phillips’ imagery is strangely eery, with a feminine edge, as if there were an invisible link to the past lives of the Surrealist women.
Phillips’ paintings are a residual effect of creativity and a choice of how to use time and can explore her common themes of science and the personal, they also address formal visual elements of color, organic structure and seeing and imagining things as they truly are.
