The George Gallery is honored to announce the premier exhibit of abstract artist Frank Phillips works on canvas in the city of Charleston.
Phillips has exhibited extensively across the East coast during his 20 years as a professional artist. He is now represented by The George Gallery at 50 Bogard St, where his opening show, “Scripting Space”, will run from November 11 to December 2.
The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception in his honor on Friday, November 11 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
According to The George Gallery owner, Anne Siegfried, it is impossible to discuss Phillip's work without talking about process--his use of reductivism to create substance. "My work," said Phillips, "uses a flat plane to convey the visual ideas of construction, mass, and volume. The formally arranged imagery is all invented, but takes cues from architecture and engineering, as well as their decay and ruin. I also consider natural elements of land masses and planes and their relationship to the horizon. The display of my process is integral to the work: tracking the time, mistakes, revisions, and experiences used to arrive at the final composition. The results are pieces that embrace surface and relate the qualities of the used, the weathered, the discarded and the beaten. I aim to create a quiet calm in the work that is still able to convey a stoic presence."
The George Gallery is located in the Elliotborough neighborhood in Charleston SC at 50 Bogard Street. Regular business hours are Tuesday-Friday 10-5, Saturday 11-5 and by appointment.
