JAYE R. PHILLIPS – PHOTOGRAPHER
LANDINGS: PHOTOGRAPHS OF BOOKS
Books are Jaye R. Phillips’ recurrent theme, vessel, tool, and inspiration. Her Choreography Notebook is part of her ongoing collage series which arose from her photography of books….books as vessels containing traces, messages, shards, dreams, openings, awakenings, and voices.
The medium of collage for Phillips gathers fragments of light and time and allows moving forward and backward in time and space. In terms of light as an element, She also see books as reflectors and absorbers of the visual.
Phillips is drawn to the writer John Berger and his grounding words from Keeping a Rendezvous:
When we read a story, we inhabit it. The covers of the book are like a roof and four walls. What is to happen next will take place within the four walls of the story….the story’s voice makes everything its own.,
Jaye R. Phillips is fine art and performance photographer living and working in Arlington, Massachusetts. Her photographs have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions including at Harvard University, Addison Gallery of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art/Chicago, and the DeCordova Art Museum. Her most recent group show was in Half the Sky: Intersections in Social Practice Art at LuXun Academy of Fine Arts in Shenyang, China.
Her work is included in the Polaroid International Collection and the Harvard Theatre Arts Collection.
She has photographed professionally for dance companies including Boston Ballet, Streb/SLAM, Eiko and Koma, and the Institute of Contemporary Art/Art and Dance series.
Her work has appeared in the New York Times Book Review, Art Forum, WGBH-TV La Plaza series, Time is not Even, Space is not Empty published by the Walker Art Center, and Zapotec Weavers of Teotitlan published by the Museum of New Mexico Press. She studied photography with Minor White at MIT, and studio arts at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston.
