> DESCRIPTION

C E R A S O L I Gallery presents  MATT PHILLIPS 'Out Through The In Door' in Gallery One at Cerasoli. Opens June 13, 2009, and remains on view through July 8, 2009.

Utilizing a multi-faceted approach to painting, Matt Phillips' large-scale, oil and collage on canvas artworks reference op-art, pattern painting, mosaics and textiles.  Phillips approaches his multilayered, dynamically textured, collage paintings as both object and illusion.  Prismatic, lively and rhythmic, accessible cube-grids and diamond quilt-piece patterns are viewed through transparent cracks, sketchy loops and crooked squares.  The artist's intentional interruption of patterned space fractures his already frenetic compositions into kaleidoscopic abstractions.  Plays on shape, color and movement result in paintings that are both formal and lyrical, quirky yet familiar.  Originally from Roanoke, Virginia, Phillips received his degree in visual art and art history from Hampshire College, where he has taught as a visiting professor.
