Bob Osborne

£7.99

Product description

The book on Chiswick -based artist Bob Osborne's Constructions and Collages has been written by renowned art critic Peter Davies. It is a hardback featuring essays on the artist's work in Cornwall and London with accompanying colour images. Peter Davies explores Osborne's interest in Surrealism and his use of driftwood, fairground materials and found objects in his boxed sculptures and collages and details his creative collaborations and friendships with Sandra Blow RA, the avant garde Tachist painter Denis Bowen and legendary street artist Jef Aerosol. The book has a foreword by Picasso's muse and 1950's model Sylvette David and there is also a colourful chapter by the artist himself about his gipsy ancestors and the influences of growing up in the bohemian atmosphere of Portobello Road in the 1960's, including black and white photographs of his family by Roger Mayne and Ken Russell. The front cover depicts a blue plaque made by Chiswick ceramicist Carrie Reichardt which is on the front of Bob Osborne's house and studio.
