In her review in the Atlanta Journal Constitution (September 2, 2007) Debra Wolf wrote, “ On the lighter side, Philip Carpenter skillfully juxtaposes pop culture icons and classical paintings. Mickey Mouse takes on the Renaissance in “Art in America”, while “After Durer” stars Bugs Bunny pointing a know-it-all finger at Albrecht Durer’s famous hare.”
In her review in Creative Loafing (August 16-22, 2007) Felicia Feaster wrote, “Along with Philip Carpenter’s wonderfully wise-ass drawings of pop culture kiddie toys and cartoons juxtaposed with classical paintings, this quartet in particular shows how our banal surroundings can allow for both soul-destroying superficiality and spiritual striving.”
Philip gave a gallery talk for “Drawn in Georgia: Works on Paper from the Collection” at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia at Suntrust Plaza (November 2, 2006-January 20, 2007).
