Troy Gaylon Phillips

Bishop by Herbert Freeman

All I know about Troy Gaylon Phillips is what was printed in two lines in the November 2010 Slotin Folk Art  Auction Catalog (pdf document).

Troy Gaylon Phillips 1943-1995, Memphis, TN. All of these works were discovered after Phillips’ death, discarded on the sidewalk outside his home.”

I have looked in vain for more information or a photo of Mr. Phillips.  I hope there were a lot more of these paintings in that trash pile and they were all saved from the dump.  I want to see more of these crazy ass pictures!

    My son bought the house that Gaylon Troy Phillips grew up in. We sold a few at a yard sale but put some on the curb. He was also my hairstylist in the mid 1960. We still correspond with his brother.
