“Even my decision to study at the New York Academy of Art, a traditionalist ‘French Academy’ in the United States, is rooted in my interest in cross-cultural pollination. My work is concerned with specific Old World cultures that are relevant to the Caribbean, predominantly the English, the French and the Spanish. Each of these cultures is reflected in the body of works presented. ‘Master Copies’ of Turner, Rivera and sections of Velazquez’ paintings are fused into the discourse of my paintings, not as mere hints of artistic influence but also as cultural relics.” -- Phillip Thomas
