Description:
The first monograph on New York-based contemporary artist Richard Phillips, best known for his large-scale paintings that are 'ultra-cool' in execution and very hot in effect. Richard Phillips's hyper realistic oil paintings embody themes as broad as power, politics, celebrity, fashion, ideology, beauty, and sex, and pose questions about the status of painting today: Does the medium remain valid, or has it become a historical pastime?

The book's exploitative design strategy celebrates the commercial and fashion alliances of the artist's practice, while revealing the complex politics behind the imagery the artist chooses to paint.
