berman gallery presents new work by two artists working
in the Austin area, Joseph Phillips and Jared Theis.
Each of these artists creates fantastical worlds –
one from clay, one on paper. Mr. Theis’ complex sculptural
environments are mysterious archeological and biological
dwellings influenced by natural forms as well as the
mathematics of music. Mr. Phillips creates fantasy
amusement parks and other outdoor spaces and exposes
and explores their substructures in delicate gouache
drawings. Joseph Phillips received a BS in Art and
Art History from Skidmore College in New York, and
Jared Theis received a BA in Sculpture from The University
of Texas at San Antonio.
