Landscapes, escapes, scrapes, scared apes …
An artist and home-builder Joseph Phillips thinks a lot about how people shape and replicate nature. His first solo show in six years,“‘SCAPES”, imagines built environments of absurd survival luxuries and compartmentalized dreams. The clean, exact gouaches have a sunny hardness and a canny sense of the dismal. The work is political, complex, and fantastic.
Opens the Saturday before election day, November 3, reception 6–9pm.
