The art of Noah Travis Phillips amalgamates meditative rigor and trickster, direct and poetic, conceptual and perceptual, personal and universal. He has a multilinear approach to printing, videos, books, performance, and the internet, working with them in adaptable compositions and formats. From materials made and found his artworks engage anonymous internet media and art historical sources, all shaped by his unique digital imprint. With the ocean of media and imagery constantly flowing and growing around us, Phillips is the artist as synthesizer, transformer, and composer. Through radical interconnections, amplification, and recontextualization, these materials become part of his oeuvre; intensifying a personal mythology and engaging in broader cultural discourses. Phillips is making the epic ordinary and the ordinary epic.
