Artist - derek finch  

 
 

“As an artist, I work in two very distinct ways.


My Photo-Visions (as shown above) are created by combining images and original artworks, with natural found objects in a unique, photographic fusion that results in an unusual quality of depth and magic. They are like dreams, untapped parts of the unconscious.


My Speaking Volumes are old, antiquarian books that have undergone a metamorphosis and been reclaimed as new artworks, while retaining their original beauty as books. The book becomes the frame and is reassembled or transformed; the pages cut into, sculpted, painted and collaged. It is then mounted like a painting, revealing a new, 3-dimensional depth - and another layer of meaning.
