Welcome To The Orange West
October 2017

This month, Tinney Contemporary premieres Joel Daniel Phillips: Welcome to the Orange West, a prescient exhibition of hyperrealistic charcoal and graphite drawings which quietly sunder relics of collective nostalgia. Phillips, an artist best known for his evocative large-format portraits of people at society’s fringe, found himself necessarily responsive to those queries warranted by Schutz’s painting earlier this year. 



Welcome To The Orange West
October 2017

Opening on Saturday, October 7th at Tinney Contemporary in Nashville, Tennessee is artist Joel Daniel Phillips' solo exhibition "Welcome to the Orange West".
Writer Mia Sullivan takes a look:
It all started with a sign for dinosaur- guarded Deb's Cafe, featuring Pepsi! and a cryptic message: 


Joel Phillips came across this sign while wandering Route 66 near Tulsa, Oklahoma shortly after he moved from San Francisco to Tulsa for an artist residency.

Elvis: Photographer Jeff Scott Takes Aim at the Everyday Regalia of the King
September 2017

“We tend to think of Elvis as this rebellious figure, but he actually had a deeply ingrained respect for authority.”

Leonard Bernstein, the famed conductor of the New York Philharmonic, knew a thing or two about cultural trends. His unorthodox, provocative statements often raised eyebrows. But one pronouncement he made in the late 1960s caused a real stir.

Reworlding: Pam Longobardi
July 2017

Pam Longobardi’s parents, an ocean lifeguard and the Delaware state diving champion, connected her to water from an early age. After discovering mountains of plastic on remote Hawaiian shores in 2006, she founded the Drifters Project, centralizing the artist as culture worker/activist/researcher. Now a global collaborative entity, Drifters Project has removed tens of thousands of pounds of material from the natural environment and re-situated it as communicative social sculpture.
