James Phillips

Born, 1945 in Brooklyn, New York, USA

From the Black Art: Ancestral Legacy catalogue:

“Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1945, James Phillips’ compositions of brightly colored patterns draw upon motifs from traditional African imagery that are incorporated into his own personal visual statement. Phillps has remarked, “My work is an endless search of discovery, reflective thinking and invention based on my ancestral heritage. These motifs, images and icons are copied, reshaped and integrated into a contemporary artistic aesthetic.” (Page 283)
