2-TIMES · Art
Richard Phillips @
Almine Rech Gallery 
— 

Modernity comes
in as 
many versions 
as there are thinkers
or 
journalists, yet 
all its definitions 
point, in one way
or another, 
to the
passage 
of time.” 

Richard's 
inspiration: 
French philosopher
Bruno Latour's 1991
(originally published)
book titled, We Have 
Never Been Modern

The exhibition

Is New York-based 
Phillips' first solo
with Almine Rech 
Gallery, presenting a
new body of paintings
by the American artist,
which are based on
Fascist era Roman
sculptures, and
the artwork of 
Cy Twombly

Phillips paints an 
equally lopsided and 
oscillating image of 
the future with all 
the hyper realism of 
his figurative past.”
