    About The Work

    Characteristic of Richard Phillips's hyper-realistic portraits of idealized beauty, $ shows a naked model set against a blown-up image of a dollar bill, with symbols lifted from the bill superimposed on the model's body. Whereas Phillips usually claims to provide a "beautiful, disassociated environment for the image to sit in," in this portrait, the environment and the subject become one and the same. Rendered in black and white, the commercial symbols stamped on the money become part of the model's skin. By fusing the two to create a whole, Phillips is able to comment on the way signifiers of commodity culture, whether or not visible in commercial advertising, are always intertwined.

    A charcoal and chalk version of this work is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, NY.
