from the gallery:
"Under Pressure, an experimental juried exhibition, continues to evolve at CO-OPt Research + Projects. New works now on view include … a collection of images by Boulder-based interdisciplinary artist Noah Travis Phillips.
Noah Travis Phillips' cluster of six images was drawn from their private media archive referencing various sorts of “pressures”--finding abstract interconnections between the geological, bodily, and linguistic.”

Project Statement:
