E. Bruce Phillips’ work is an exploration of the connection between humans and the environment as reflected in man-made structures. He is known for use of circles, straight lines, and what Phillips calls his own “curvilinear markings” as a form of artistic expression. Color and texture, the richness of architecture and spatial relationships, and the marriage of precise perspective with the mystery of abstract add layers of complexity that are inherent to our relationship with our physical surroundings.
Phillips’ newer works include photography which seeks to capture the distinctive style and architecture in downtown Montreal or New Orleans, the gritty crumbling buildings and bridges of American industrial cities, and the amazing topography thousands of miles above Barbados. While evoking an emotional response, Phillips’ work also creates an opportunity for people to share perspectives and ideas.
Before becoming an art professor at Tuskegee University, Phillips held positions as director of the Chastain Arts Center & Gallery in Atlanta, associate professor of art at the Atlanta Metropolitan College, and director of community outreach at Savannah College of Art and Design.
