Fiona Phillips’ Glamorous Work exhibit

ST. GEORGE – Ironic, humorous, thought provoking —Fiona Phillips' latest painting collection, Glamorous Work elicits all these reactions. Her oil and collage paintings of women in 50’s attire doing housework are vibrant and retro, but they are also a commentary on our past and present as women “who do it all.”

Phillips said her favorite art subject is women, and while she does do occasional traditional commissioned portraits, her personal portraiture, or art depicting women, always holds layers of meanings, memories and symbolism. Her new series of paintings is an “offshoot from her previous work of deconstructing family memories, and was inspired by looking at old snapshots of her mother in lovely dresses from the 1950s and 60’s,” she said. She also based her work on advertisements targeting women in this era that portrayed the cultural phenomenon of the glamorous housewife or “domestic goddess.”
