Phil Sanders: Tempter of Man
Phil Sanders is an artist and the director and collaborative master printer at the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, a cooperative printmaking workspace that provides professional-quality printmaking facilities to artists and printmakers of every skill level. Sanders’s interest in printmaking stems from an interest in art and science. These fields involve similar creative processes rooted in experimentation and observation while simultaneously challenging and evolving historic absolutes. Though Sanders is a printer by training his work is not media specific and he often works through his conceptual goals via painting, drawing, photography, artist books, and sculpture. Sanders’s current body of work parallels the mythology of American Western expansion with the contemporary cultural expansion of the global west.
