the alchemy of color
“My process emerged from experiments and study of the interaction between the artist, the materials, and the laws of gravity and matter.”
As a process-based artist, Renee explores the manipulation of paint, and layering of color, to achieve sculptural like results that droop, ripple, crack and pool on the surface. Further engaging the elements of heat, wind, water and gravity, she pushes paint to its limit, allowing each color to display its individual ‘signature effect’, which is studied, layered and re-worked to reveal highly tactile and seductive surfaces that characterize her contemporary color field paintings.
“The uniqueness of Phillips’ process arrests movement and allows paint to visually dazzle viewers in refreshing and visceral ways that feel like new ground is being broken.”
