Richard Phillips, A Guy in Blue Suit With Big Glasses, Tyler Breuer, Lindsay Lohan, Some Surfable Waves and Some Crisp Paintings, You and a Rare Bird

You may remember Richard Phillips from such EBNY posts as this.
Or you may know him from such T.V, appearances as this:

An avid surfer and successful artist, Mr. Phillips has a show going up at the Gagosian.
Ty Breuer says you should go see his large-scale glossy hyper-realistic paintings, recalling the pictorial style of magazines from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and reflecting traditions of popular image culture. His paintings represent close-up portraits, predominantly of women from fashion and soft porno magazines, but also persons from the fields of pop music and politics.
As Mr. Phillips himself might caution: "My pictures involve a kind of wasted beauty - that's always been a thread in my work."

This has been a test of the EBNY Emergency Blogcast System.  This was only a test.  Were it a real EBNY Web Log posting it would be otherwise.
