Phillip Baltz at The Yard

February 26, 2019/ by Olivia Ramirez

On Tuesday, March 5th from 6-8pm we’re celebrating a new exhibition by Phillip Baltz at The Yard: Bryant Park. Curated by Site:Brooklyn, the exhibit features a collection of acrylic paintings, many of which are inspired by Baltz’s earlier travels to Vietnam. His work is an exploratory process as he allows himself to be compelled by the elements within the composition that drive the final nature of the piece. As Baltz so eloquently states, he “moves in the current of his creative flow.”

We hope that you’ll join us at the opening reception to learn more about the inspiration behind these stunning pieces. Drinks and light bites will be provided.

About the Artist

Philip Baltz’s paintings focus on the present. Balancing monochrome and color, they suggest vistas and abstracted typographies.

By carefully layering acrylics, oils, epoxy resin, and natural elements, Baltz’s paintings draw striking fields of color, complex textures, and hints of landscape. His experiments with composition and consistency make for a truly singular series of works.
