persevering poets. Grosvenor is a
genuine "aesthetic," trained in po-
etry, deportment, and the fine art of
holding lilies while standing by a
14ke. But Bunthorne is a phony -
the ultimate poseur - who adapts
the "aesthetic" persona just to woo
Gilbert and Sullivan humorously
deyelop the two love affairs while
taking accurate stabs at British soci-
ety - especially the pompous, af-
feted late-18th century English aes-
And, of course, in true Gilbert
and Sullivan style, Patience offers
the purest form of entertainment -
the simple humor conveyed through
those bouncy beats, exaggerated
British accents, the guady songs like
"Twenty Love-Sick Maidens We."
Sure it's silly and sappy. But as one
of Patience's characters sings,
"Nonsense? Ah, perhaps. But, ah,
such precious nonsense."

The Soviet Union seems to be
the focus of much conversation these
days in light of Gorbachev's visit
and the march in Washington D.C.
last Sunday to support the release of
Soviet Jews. Everyone has a differ-
ent way of expressing their views
towards the other "super power."
William Phillips reacts by creating
In his show at the Reehill
Gallery, Phillips presents adapta-
tions of Russian icons along with
other abstractions and experimental
pieces to commemorate the millen-
nial anniversary of Christianity in
Russia. Phillips feels his work re-
flects many of the truths in life, act-
ing as a "vehicle through which
love, care and majesty in God's di-
vinity come through to the be-
holder." Phillips gains thematic in-
sight by studying works from the
Byzantine era, Spain, Ethiopia, and
Phillips educates his audience
through the variety of his presenta-
tion and the historical and religious
facts he presents with each reproduc-
tion. He compares his adaptation of
the Russian icons to other religious
pieces, showing the contrasts in
models of religious works from all
over the world.
Phillips has also incorporated
some psychedelic paintings into his
show. He feels these works lend the
exhibit a meditative quality. He
created these works with acrylics on
wood, and feels they "filled with the
dynamism of the human spirit." He
thinks these works reflect William
Blake's philosophy of a "divine
spirit speaking through men."
As a child, Phillips was exposed
to many varieties of Christian art.
When he later visited the Metropoli-
tan Museum of Art in New York, he
saw Christian icons exhibited and
became increasingly fascinated by
this thousand year old genre of art.
At first Phillips was hesitant in
making his own interpretations of
these works but now, he modestly
admits that he is "pleased by the
outcome of his reproductions."
Phillips exhibit will be showing
at the Reehill Gallery (located in St.
Adian's and Northside Churches at
1679 Broadway) through the Winter
Holidays. The Gallery is open Mon-
day through Friday from 8:30 a.m.
through 1:00 a.m. and Sundays from
