Back in 2009 Richard Phillips, the artist I interviewed a few weeks ago, collaborated with MAC cosmetics. This is a big deal. Especially for those of us who are simultaneously obsessed with beauty products as well as art. Lucky for me, I was able to find images from his complete collection, though it’s no longer available. I’m actually glad I was able to see it. As a great collaborator, Phillips and digital artist Pascal Dangin, retouched a painting he was going to show at the Gagosian with the colors from his MAC collection. The piece is called “Der Bodensee” and it’s a large hyper realistic painting of a woman’s face. Her face is racy, sultry and blithely unaware of her looks.
