While playful, amplified colors initially attract and immerse the viewer in the image, the line work transforms the drawing into something else. Like a catchy pop song with a dark, underlying theme told in the lyrics, the viewer feels comforted but as the details begin to emerge, the familiarity fades away as the truth of the piece is revealed. Phil’s work explores the balance of creating an image that is, on the surface, pleasing and eye-catching while creating a narrative that is satirical and disruptive.
