From the exhibition text:
[…] Phillip draws from elements of painting, sculpture, and architecture, and deploys a pared-down vocabulary of pure forms, reflective surfaces, and continually changing colors to create absorbing perceptual and atmospheric effects. Inspired by the daily light phenomena of the desert, many works slowly shift from hue to hue as determined by Phillip’s precisely paced color choreography. All of his works have an elusive, ephemeral quality to them. As the light and the perspective of the viewer shift, so the form and perception of the works fluctuate--creating an ever-changing experience.
