You’d Think It Were Sunny Series 2018

Her paintings are a residual effect of creativity and a choice of how to use time. They explore common themes of science and the personal and also address formal visual elements of color, organic structure and a combination of observation and imagination.

After Phillips’ relocation to the Oregon Coast, a most beautiful place indeed, she paid close attention to her physiologic response to a new environment and how it would effect her imagery. You’d Think It Were Sunny Series began in the season of record high rainfall with long heavy grey days. Flickering through the dense grey fog, are the neon lights of the city. Happiness from the playful paintings is the desired effect.

The Higgs Boson Collection

Not far in concept, her paintings often explore science themes, as in the Higgs Boson body of work. This series has platforms to speak of science through art and art through science. However, one walks away from such heady topic with the acknowledgment that the series would not exist had the the domestic realm of mothering not been the instigator for such scientific investigations. As with these works, her paintings are fundamental acts of creativity and exploration and an attempt to satiate the craving of color and form.
