This exhibition by leading British artist Tom Phillips consists
of an entirely new body of work. With extraordinary delicacy
Phillips has dissected his previously used, discarded plastic
palettes and converted fragments of them into intricate oil
collages mounted on panels.
Throughout Phillips' broad practice he has been drawn to
materials, texts and images, often those that appeared unloved,
(hair, mud etc.) and reconfigured them into artworks, aiming as he
says 'to be the complete recycler'. This body of works continues
this preoccupation, originating in a series started in 1969 called
Terminal Greys, which form a border to some of the new paintings.
