The concept of hiding and revealing type on the printed page and creating an art object is reminescent of Tom Philips’ treated novel; the humument, in which he drew and painted over 360 pages of dense type. The results of which are brilliant and can be found reproduced online on this excellent website.
Tom Phillips <3 Beautiful rain which the rain drops are small letters. Using pages from books and pens which i like. I like the idea that you can make a story or statement with one text and highlighting words or phrases. Creative and unique and makes you look and read between the lines
Tom Phillips,I came across this artist on visiting Tate Britain and visiting their print room. His work stood out to me as I loved how meaningful his work look by simply covering some of the writing. I felt his work was very expressive and reflected that upon my own work.
