Phillis Ideal’s paintings are richly layered with a mixture of color, bold and gestural brushstrokes and collaged elements. The wonderful compositions and color palettes evolve during her process of experimentation in the studio, conflating and referencing many art historical movements and tendencies from modernism to Abstract Expressionism and Color Field to Minimalism and beyond—creating her own language out of the many forms of abstraction. Her art-making practice is not meant to be representational, yet the finished artwork, frequently with suggestive titles, is often referential but in different ways to different viewers—a hallmark of great abstraction.
Phillis Ideal has exhibited in major museums and galleries in San Francisco, Santa Fe and New York City. Her work has been shown and collected in many private, corporate and public collections such as MH de Young Museum, Oakland Museum of Fine Arts, Newport Harbor Art Museum and Fine Arts Museum of Santa Fe. In recent years she has exhibited her work in Otranto, Italy, Berlin, Germany and Paris, France. Her academic experience includes teaching at San Francisco State, UC Berkeley, and Sarah Lawrence.
