Tom Phillips - A Humument (1966-73)
“In 1966 Phillips set himself a task: to find a second-hand book for threepence and alter every page by painting, collage and cut-up techniques to create an entirely new version. He found his threepenny novel in a junkshop on Peckham Rye, South London. This was an 1892 Victorian obscurity titled A Human Document by W.H Mallock and he titled his altered book A Humument.
The first version of all 367 treated pages was published in 1973 since when there have been four revised editions. A Humument is now one of the best known and loved of all 20th Century artist’s books and is regarded as a seminal classic of postmodern art.”

Joris Kuipers‘ intricate, richly detailed creations combine painting, sculpture, and installation art. Trained as a painter, Kuipers applies vibrant hues and complex textures to his surfaces, sometimes applying paint directly from the tube or using spray bottles to achieve what he calls a “contemporary pointillism.” Experimenting with surfaces from papier-maché to porcelain, Kuipers creates curving, multilayered, three-dimensional objects and installations. The delicacy and seeming weightlessness of these pieces is beautifully counterbalanced by their exuberantly whirling movement. In Kuipers’ artist statement he references everything from Rococo architecture to woodcuts to MRI-scans; the hybrid result is wonderfully compelling.
