The sketches that Dan Phillips creates for his furniture-making exude a style far beyond typical carpenter’s drafts. They’re compelling and tactile visuals in their own right. His furniture echoes the lines of early American decorative and folk art. Phillips has a deep appreciation for the aesthetic that carries through the periods, and one sees the same stylized sensibility and precision in his artwork.

Phillips’ paintings started as graffiti tags before he moved to paper, primarily working in gouache. The paintings created for I don’t want to, but I will, were made in response the Project Room space. While each piece is a luscious story on its own, collectively they tell a familiar narrative. One that’ is very relatable as we resume a previous pace of life in a post-pandemic world.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 17.
