PHILLIPS, Tom

Tom Phillips RA, CBE (1937 – 2022) attended drawing classes and lectures on Renaissance iconography at Ruskin alongside his studies in English at St Catherine’s College, Oxford. Taught by Frank Auerbach in 1961 at Camberwell School of Art, Phillips’s first solo exhibition in London was in 1965 at the Artists International Association Gallery, followed by an exhibition with Angela Flowers in 1970. Phillips taught at Bath Academy of Art, Ipswich and Wolverhampton Art College between 1965 and 1972, and in 1969 he won the John Moores Prize,

A HUMUMENT

In 1966 Phillips resolved to dedicate himself to making art out of the first secondhand book he could find for threepence on Peckham Rye. Thus began A Humument, the longest of Phillips’s extended serial projects. A Humument is a radical ‘treatment’ of a forgotten Victorian novel by means of collage, cut-up ornament and other techniques, creating new works of art and poetic text from the original pages.
