Gina Phillips received her BFA from the University of Kentucky and her MFA from Tulane University.
Gina uses fabric, string and paint to create 2 dimensional figurative works that explore life, death and nostalgia in America. The works featured in I have a secret wish… combine works from two separate series: Heroes and Villains and Cut-Outs. The juxtaposition of these works ponder the disconnect between contemporary culture and our not-always-pleasant history.
Gina shows at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans and her work was featured at the Contemporary Art Center as part of New Orleans’ Prospect 2. Gina has some Birmingham projects in the works for the near future, so come see her first at UAB!
