Jason Phillips is a New York City–based American sculptor whose work explores the specific nature of objects found in urban environments and how they relate to the fabric of the city. He focuses on the small details that make up the bigger whole or on objects that are hidden in plain view. His sculptures range from planar and geometric to rounded and organic, pushing materials to come to terms with their weight, strength, technical limitations, and capabilities. Phillips currently works in various workshops and foundries between New York and Fuzhou, China. He is currently building a gallery space in Marfa, Texas.
