Terri Phillips draws from a multiplicity of artistic traditions, including sculpture, performance, film, installation, sound, and photography. Her work incorporates humble materials and everyday objects to create scenes of magic realism based on an abstracted narrative of the artist's history. Phillips choses materials based on their tactile and sensual qualities to provoke intuitive responses that include the viewer in completing the process of the narrative. Together these elements transform the experience with the intimacy of memory and the subconscious.
