Paperwork is the first fully illustrated book on the work of eccentric collage-artist Peter Clark, providing a unique insight into his fascinating career. I really love Peters work its so full of fun and creativity, using things hes found; maps, letters, stamps, and then creating finished work that has a real sensitivity. Paul Smith, fashion designer Paperwork includes subjects as varied as animals, fashion, accessories and some of the sources from which Clark derives his inspiration. Old maps, love letters, stamps, playing cards, match boxes, rosettes, buttons, labels, patterns, all form the starting point of Peter Clarks innovative and often humorous paper collages. Clark undertakes many scavenger trips to antiques fair, car-boot sales, bric-a-brac markets and second hand stores to find the right objects to inspire him. Paperwork presents the working methods of this eccentric and unique artist, showing the progression of his work from found ephemera to pieces of art. Accompanied by a background story to his work and beautifully illustrated with full-page pictures, this book provides us with an insight into Peter Clarks practice, from his early works to his most recent collages. Paperwork will inspire anyone with an interest in collage, collecting, portraiture and scrapbooking.
