SKETCHBOOK. BEGAN 1966. MANY ORIGINAL SMALL PAINTINGS.

£600.00

32 x 20cm, c 120pp plus red cloth covered boards – a commercially purchased “diary” type notebook with lined pages. A sketchbook began on 20 August 1966 according to a note by Collins on the inside front cover. Inside are many coloured small paintings attached to the pages using Scotch tape by the artist plus texts discussing the artist’s abstract experiments. This is one of a small number of such unique books made by Collins as part of his practice. Many of the pages are torn or browned or folded and many of the strips of Scotch tape are browned and have lost their adhesion but this is an interesting find – especially from an artist who was not particularly known for his use of abstraction in his works (although colour was an important part of his photographic practice). Unique.
