“No More Taboos: Brad Phillips Paints Against the Puritans,” interview with “Blouin ArtInfo”, November 30, 2015 [online]
“Shoe, Sock and Shadow” is an example of the artist’s exploration of capturing everyday moments and tokens of life in his body of work through painting. Perhaps with subjects seen as banal or mundane, the artist instead sees an opportunity to capture a specific moment of interest in time and space. The artist has used his own photography as reference material, however he attests that: “I am not a photorealist. In turning the photographs into paintings I’m able to do multiple things: crop out what I don’t want, change the colours, the lines, exaggerate aspects, and mute aspects.” He continues, “Typically if I make a painting from a photograph, I took that photograph precisely to paint it. The camera is just a tool. For me it’s not translation so much as transmutation.”
