Time-Out Chicago Review - Lauren Weinberg

Layer by Layer, Phillips reconstructs a gorgeous red-tinted photograph of a Gothic building. The last few panels are variations on the completed image with accents in blue ink."

Tony Fitzpatrick, Alexis McQuilkin, Angee Lennard, Stina Kaz, Daniel Zaretsky, Dolan Geiman, Elke Claus, Frol Boundin, Glenn Hendrick, Glenn Wexler, James Beckman, Jamie Bilgo, Jess Ferrone, Karin Patzke, Kumiko Murakami, Lauren Anderson, Michael Pajon , Scott Whipkey, Dora Lisa Rosenbaum, Maria Marchenkova

Chicago Sun Times Review - Press Clipping
October 14, 2005
A Snapshot of Chicago's Art Community
BY KEVIN NANCE Art Critic

The show's most effective single image, Mark Phillips' "Wander," blends abstraction and the figure with consummate subtlety and maximum emotional effect. Without polemics or preaching, this mixed-media work -- with its lone human form hunched and barely visible in a swirl of anxious color -- suggests the fragility and loneliness of the individual in this noisy, fractious world. It's powerful and haunting.
