Nicholas Jones

P1011832Copy of P1011984-1

Nicholas Jones is a known sculptor who uses books and printed paper to create incredibly involved artworks. He transforms discarded books by folding, tearing and sewing to highlight the poetic nature of the book as a sculptural form.One of his reasons for choosing books as his object was because he loves the fact of a ready made object being changed/converted into a totally different object. Like others, he has also faced the scrutiny of "damaging" books due to his artwork, but he says that comes with the job!
