The title of John Ransom Phillips exhibition is borrowed from Giorgio Vasari’s 16th-century book about the artists of his time. Ransom Phillips’ recent watercolors art not art-historical; rather they are psychological and symbolic representations of artists of interest to him. Combining abstraction, figuration, and his own poetic language written beneath each image, he distills what he considers the essence of the particular artist’s work. These vividly colorful watercolors and oil paintings are lyrical, and often humorous.
