July 27 to August 17, 2017
Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Inspired Duality” an exhibition of works by Robert Gregory Phillips, of oil and acrylic pieces considering the dualities expressing an authentic life inspired by the spirit from July 27 to August 17, 2017.
Robert Gregory Phillips was born in 1955 and is a contemporary American artist. He works in a broad range of media including painting, photography, drawing, collage, video and code art. This latest collection of pieces remains to focus on his individual theme of spirituality but has progressed into a heightened form of expression. Robert considers the dualities which encompass an authentic life inspired by the spirit. Deeply connected to poetry and the tranquil essence of nature, Robert discovers unique patterns and colors to reveal his inspiration drawn from people, history and underlying simple, everyday moments. His pieces consistently portray a reflection of four main elements: Fire, Wind, Earth, Water. Focusing on achieving pulling these elements together to translate his emotional ties with the seasons of nature and the sun or the moon.
Through his use of color, texture and brush stroke, Robert vibrates the viewer with these strong emotional ties that he so longs to connect with nature and the spirit of the all-encompassing earth. This plays a primordial role when appreciating one of his creations. On this latest collection of his works, he explores a unique color pallet which is at times soft and vulnerable and at others frivolous and chaotic. Both drawing upon the pureness of the moment which evokes a raw, elegant and modern feel. His works are in corporate and private collections in the United States, Korea, and China.
Holding a Bachelor of Science in Painting from Troy University, Alabama, abstraction, realism, impressionism, minimalism and color field are among the influences of his art. He currently lives and works in Texas creating his pieces in his studio near nature.
