Tom Phillips (English, born 1937)
Born in London in 1937, Tom Phillips studied at St Catherine’s College in Oxford and at Camberwell School of Art. Since 1975 he has had a number of one-man exhibitions in Britain and abroad. One of the most prominent contemporary British portrait painters, Phillips also writes and composes. In 1982, he published a translated and illustrated version of Dante’s ‘Inferno’, and his opera ‘Irma’ was first performed in 1973. One of his best-known publications is ‘A Humument’; a Victorian novel of which each page has been turned into an artwork. It is not just the finished work of art, but also the creative process itself that interests Phillips. This is reflected not only in his individual paintings, but even more so in his detailed documentation of each work’s development.
