Artworks made in Autumn 2021 are exhibited a year later in (Summer) 2022. The work is a formative vignette, in the depths of the pandemic, gravitating toward dark imagery and spaces (basements and caves) the artist created a fictional and unsolicited exhibition. The exhibition takes two forms, which can be considered in chapters, of which Phillips could be considered the multi-protagonist.
