Born into a working class family, Peter Phillips studied at the Royal College of Art in London during the early 1960s, alongside fellow classmates Derek Boshier, David Hockney, Allen Jones, Brett Whitely and R. B. Kitaj, among others. Melding commercial iconography – such as the arcade machines, pin-up girls and motorbikes representative of his Birmingham upbringing – with such commercial techniques as airbrushing, Phillips has created a body of work that is both formally dynamic and thought-provoking.
After years of living, traveling and working between Europe, the United States and Central America, Peter Phillips has relocated his working studio to Australia after receiving international recognition of his exceptional and outstanding achievement to the arts by the Australian Government – who granted Peter a Distinguished Talent visa, allowing him to live permanently in Australia. Having found a large acreage property in the foothills behind Noosa, Peter renovated an industrial barn into a large-scale studio and gallery to house his private collection.
|The Peter Phillips Collection encompasses six decades of work, spanning from large-scale paintings to mixed-media collages to lithographic
prints and sculptures, which will be unveiled to the public as part of a two-day event on May 18th & 19th, 2019 during the Noosa
Food & Wine Festival, also coinciding with the artist’s 80th Birthday.
At the event POP! on May 18th Phillips will inaugurate his newly-constructed studio gallery with an exhibition of works spanning the course of his influential six-decade career, accompanied by an exclusive screening of a documentary featuring the artist. Celebrated Chef Josh Lopez (best known for his role at the lauded two-hatted GOMA) will prepare artistic canapes inspired by the art. Noosa-based Fortune Distillery will unveil six limited-release London Style Gin bottles and FREEMAN Vineyards will serve their estate grown, handmade Freeman Prosecco. The gallery will remain open to the public through the remainder of the festival weekend.
The following day, on May 19th, the event Progressive Pop will feature an exclusive six-course menu inspired by the six decades of work, prepared by Chef Josh Lopez with wine pairings by Torbreck Wines. Each course will be accompanied by rare artworks from Peter’s collection, as well as limited edition take-away cards signed by the artist.
